Take a Detour With Soho Through The Italian Back-Roads

The date is 1938 and the Third Reich has commenced operation Sonderprojekte, which is collecting all the great art of Europe and storing them in Nazi Germany. Assigned to the mission is a young twenty-six year old named Ernst Vogler. With him are twin Italian brothers who have been hired to escort Vogler and his precious cargo to the border.  But things start to go wrong immediately. The twins have other priorities in mind- a crazed adventure of wild romances and criminal side jobs that’ll take them in a detour through the Italian back roads.  Read what Times Literature declares “Epic in scale ... excels as a portrait of a country at a painful moment in its evolution.” And the New York Times Book Review calls “An impressive and richly atmospheric debut.”
