A man is shot dead in front of City Hall in Philadelphia where his family is tangled in a bitter lawsuit. One brave woman, drawn there by a work of art, finds herself following a twisted trail to the hills of Le Marche in Italy to learn why. All the while, the cloud of fraud grows thicker and darker around her. But, as C. S. Forester said, perhaps the scandal of fraud enhances the flavor.

This thrilling story grabs and holds the reader from the first chapter through unexpected twists all the way to the richly satisfying ending. Art expert Claire Bliss and police Comandante Baldo are joined and antagonized by unforgettable characters in both Philadelphia and Italy. The authenticity of Ferreri’s players and their territories give special vibrance to the novel.

Lovers of the Renaissance will be drawn in immediately by the book’s cover, a painting of Mary Magdalene by Carlo Crivelli (ca. 1480) in the Rijksmuseum. Inside the book, a great art crime story unfolds together with a gem of a murder mystery.

A Cloud of Fraud is colorful, fast-moving entertainment.

One Sacred Crown [1]

Many mysteries surround one of the world's most famous sacred objects, The Crown of the Andes, a stunning crown of gold and emeralds made in South America in the late 1500's. Who could have guessed its fate in the 20th century, in North America?

The exciting tale of a grieving young woman caught up in the greed surrounding the Crown is a work of modern suspense and passion. Her assignment to sell the Crown is the path of anguish to redemption.

The Crown, its owner, its pursuers and its rescuers all converge in a drama with a thrilling twist of fate, or is it fate?

The Matter of the Crown [2]

The Crown of the Andes, one of the world's most precious and beautiful sacred objects, has been stolen right off the stage at Satterling's Auction House in New York City. Five pounds of magnificent baroque gold that ransomed the Inca Ruler Atahaulpa, and hundreds of perfect Colombian emeralds, all gone without a trace!

Will this legendary treasure be destroyed for its gold and emeralds? Claire, the heroine from "One Sacred Crown," braving danger and emotional turmoil, is in hot pursuit.
