Advance Praise for A Forgery in Lyon:

“Tension in a novel is difficult to maintain at a pitch that actually creates a physical impact. A few of the best writers can do it, and among them is Janice Nagourney.” — Vincent dePaul Lupiano, author of Massacre at Oradour-sur-Glane


“What a change in situation! Just when everything seemed to be going well for our heroines, unexpected events once again put them in serious danger. I love following the adventures of Alex and Marie-Agnès!” — Laura, Literature & Art History teacher


A Forgery in Lyon

A translator's tranquil life in the French countryside is shattered when a retired FBI agent returns to rekindle their relationship and she plunges once again into an international criminal's web of deceit.


Six months have passed since the events of A Forgery in Paris when French-American translator Alex Thornhill and FBI agent Eugene Spector infiltrated the world of international art criminal Jacques Mornnais to try to restore a fortune paid for a fake Poussin. Now, Jacques' head enforcer has seemingly come back from the dead, and Alex and Jacques gingerly approach plunging back into Jacques' dangerous world-- and each other's arms.

Pulsing with an exquisite, authentic eye for the richly-textured world its characters inhabit, the French Deception series features compelling characters, surprising plot twists, and continental romance for its kick-ass female heroine. The books of Janice Nagourney's page-turning series focus on the growing romance between Alex and Eugene as they push into the organized crime in the art world in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, and Toulouse.
