About The Book
THE FINAL AUDIT is a gripping tale of a charismatic adventurer whose journey takes him through the muddy waters of South Africa’s apartheid era, sanction busting Mossad secret agents and double dealing Nazi war criminals in a quest to recover art stolen from his uncle who was murdered by the Nazis in 1943 during the German occupation of Norway.
The story is superbly narrated against a background of the author’s experiences growing up in poverty in search of a life ethic in a better world. It is testimony to an extraordinary life with a multitude of facets, intellectual energy, courage, wit and self-determination.
“Compulsively readable – superbly narrated. This is testimony to one person’s life with a multitude of facets, intellectual energy, courage, wit, selfless determination, and an absolute lack of fear in his continual quest to conquer life’s hurdles and achieve success. . The pages of this book, filled with sorrow, suspense, love, insight, wisdom and dry humour, challenge the world-weary notion that human beings have lost the capacity to change things. The Final Audit captivates, educates and enriches the soul”.

Your book is like a painting with the artist’s attention to detail on the subject matter, whilst applying broad strokes in the background.”
