to join Owen Pataki for an online discussion with sister and best-selling author Allison Pataki about his new book SEARCHERS IN WINTER; A NOVEL OF NAPOLEON’S EMPIRE.
Inspired by the mysterious origins of the famed Rothschild’s fortune, the bloody battles of the Napoleonic wars, the notorious gangs of nineteenth-century Naples, and the real-life mistress who charmed Napoleon into granting Poland a nation-state, Searchers in Winter sets a cast of unforgettable characters—against epic historical events—into thrilling motion from the opening pages.
