From award-winning filmmaker and producer Mike Downey comes an ambitious and atmospheric historical thriller debut, the first in a trilogy starring Marco Mihailić.
Set on Croatia’s Istrian peninsula, Istria Gold explores the turbulent region’s history, culture, and traditions, bringing it to life in the grand tradition of authors such as Martin Walker and his Bruno Courrèges series. It is a fast-moving adventure mystery set in the Adriatic province of Istria and taking place over three dramatic historical eras:
- Istria: The Present Day
- The Roman Occupation of the 1st Century AD
- The Partisan of the War of Liberation 1943-45
Istria Gold follows the powerful, elusive and corrupting lure of the Istrian Truffle across the sweep of history.
