Alan Llewellyn--teacher, sleuth or spy? If you asked him, he'd probably tell you "It depends." In "Snow on the Golden Horn," a beautiful young artist is kidnapped and a colleague asks Alan to help find her. What starts as a cold trail heats up rapidly as Alan follows clues leading him to the ancient splendor of Istanbul, the ghosts of Gallipoli and the sun-drenched, decadent splendor of Turkey's Turquoise Coast. Alan keeps his day job at Augustine Washington High School but confronts crises that are a ton more violent than kid fights in the cafeteria in the terrifying attempt to rescue the beautiful artist from the global grasp of the Russian Mafia.
