Item Description...
Author Reginald Keith, in his novel "The Malcontents," paints a portrait of war-torn Germany, the lives of those ravaged by violence and betrayal within the Third Reich. Enter into the society and culture of post-war Germany still populated by those who believed and supported the philosophy of The Malcontents, a group of former officials in the Nazi regime, whose plan was to convert prestigious works of art into cash as recompense, ultimately financing a resurrection of Aryan Supremacy through political power. Andre Von Kunst, owner of Von Kunst Gallery, Berlin, finds himself fascinated by Katya Preznoski, first violinist with the Polish State Orchestra. Determined to meet her in person, he follows the orchestra across Germany, as his partner, Hannelore Hassenfeld, a friend since childhood, manages the gallery. Unbeknownst to Andre, she continues to perpetuate an illicit plan set up by her father with a group of former Nazi government officials, known as the Kreis, to funnel stolen artworks to the gallery for eventual sale in the U.S. An unlikely turn of events sheds light on personal betrayals, blatant prejudices, unrequited love, and conflicting loyalties, as this intense journey into the German society of the sixties proffers that things are not often what they appear to be.

The Challenge of Forgiving a Betrayal  Apr 2, 2008
A few years ago I was intrigued by the real-life story of Tony Russell's recovery in 1994 of "The Scream," a famous painting by Edvard Munch, which was stolen again in 2004 a decade after Russell returned the painting to its rightful owner.

Russell, co-founder of Scotland Yard's art recovery investigative unit, now is head of art recovery for a private company. Last year I was talking about Russell with a friend who then recommend that I read a novel by Reginald Keith, The Malcontents: Betrayal is Forgiveness' Greatest Challenge (ISBN: 9781602475373), Tate Publishing & Enterprises. That's what we have good friends for - to turn our attention to good books.

The Malcontents takes place in post-Word War II Germany and involves a group of former Nazi officials who had access to valuable paintings confiscated by the Nazi's during the war. The group plots to sell the paintings to raise money to finance a movement that wants to bring back Aryan Supremacy into the German nation.

The owner of a respect art gallery in Berlin, Andre von Kunst, is unaware that long-time friend and business partner Hannelore is one of the malcontents secretly working to smuggle original works of art to America as copies. Andre would never have discovered what was going on behind the scenes in his own gallery if he had not become fascinated with Katya Preznoski, first violinist with the Polish State Orchestra directed by Maestro Mylovic Karpinski.

The plot involves people of honor and integrity - Katya, Maestro Karpinski, Andre and his receptionist Else - against the wilful and secretive Hannelore and the band of malcontents who surround her. Working in and out of the plot is a pair of insurance investigators who came across a valuable original painting sold in America as a copy.

I was as intrigued by the story pitting honor against dishonour, to see whether good or evil would prevail, as I was by the who-dun-it story line. Andre and Katya hold fast to their honor and commitment to do what is right and good in life and find themselves ridiculed by Hannelore and others. Until the end there remains the possibility that honor will lose out to dishonor, and truth be out shadowed by lies.

Once the story line develops, the drama of The Malcontents is so strong that I was unable to put the book down until learning how the story would end. The story line is true to the non-fiction accounts I had read earlier of Tony Russell's real life art-recovery tales. As in other good works of fiction, The Malcontents mixes in facts and reality tells me that Reginald Keith spent a lot of time researching the real world to lay a realistic background for the fictional tale he so artfully spins.

I would strongly recommend you read this book, even if you are not my friend.
