It's up to none other than the Big Apple's highest profile detective—the mayor himself—to take on a conspiracy of greed, evil, and lies dating back to the dark heart of WWII: the secrets of looted Nazi gold and Swiss banking.
The Senator Must Die
Ed Koch, his bodyguards, and U.S. Senator Anson Hubbard are leaving a press conference on looted Nazi gold when their party is brutally ambushed. By the time the shooting stops, a bodyguard is dead and Ed Koch is determined to unravel a mystery that strikes too close to home. Senator Hubbard has been campaigning for a full accounting of gold stolen by the Nazis during the Holocaust and deposited into Swiss banks. While the mayor's staff immediately believes that Hizzoner was the intended victim of the assassination attempt, Koch isn't so sure. When Hubbard is seriously wounded by a sniper just before leaving for Switzerland, Koch's instincts prove accurate.
The mayor volunteers to take Hubbard's place and travel to the banking capital of the world. But from the moment he arrives there, Koch is aware of the dangers swirling all around him. It's a web of deadly secrets that Koch is desperate to untangle, with little time to get the answers he seeks. Because not only are the descendants of Holocaust victims waiting for justice to be served, but lives are also at stake—and as Hizzoner soon discovers—one of them may be his own.
