"The Face of Agamemnon" tells the astonishing, mostly-true story behind one of the great thefts of ancient art perpetrated during World War II.

Mark Twain once said: “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; truth isn't.”

Based on a radio interview, research and personal accounts from a former leader of the Estonian Resistance, “The Face of Agamemnon” tells the astonishing, mostly-true story behind one of the great thefts of ancient art perpetrated during World War II.

“These are not cardboard cut-outs moving against a painted backdrop, but real people that I met,” said Galway. “The sequence of the story is exactly as it happened in real life and had to invent nothing to make this the fast-moving story that it is from the first line.”

Blending elements of mystery, adventure and intrigue, Galway crafts a fast-paced, tension-filled story that explores war, vendettas, greed and power, while also searching for existential meaning from the protagonist’s perspective.

“War and violence are presented in the book, not as something to add to the entertainment value of the story but as subjects to be questioned and explored,” Galway said.
