Journalist Lily Kovner, a 60 year old New York widow, attends an auction doing research for an assignment and sees an antique Italian Seder plate come to the block. Recognizing it as a treasure looted from her family by the Nazis more than 50 years earlier, she protests the sale of stolen property. This prompts the auction company officials to whisk it away.
Lily’s determined to recover the Seder plate and launches a search that extends to three continents. Along the way she confronts threats, a murder, a decades-old diabolical deal, betrayal, a previously unknown cousin AND new romance.
A sequel to After the Auction–same main characters, similar theme–is due out in the spring of 2013. Title: The Lost Torah of Shanghai.
