This biography of Florence Gould, whose long life embraced most of the deadly sins from pride, greed, fame, lust and power to sheer survival, shows her to be truly A DANGEROUS WOMAN. Known to the world as an avid private collector and bountiful patron of the arts – but to her friends as the devil-may-care American beauty and man-eating literary Salonnière – I reveal the truth behind the mask of respectability, including Gould’s dark past as a Nazi collaborator in 1940’s occupied France. Her grave misdeeds had J. Edgar Hoover doggedly pursuing her, investigating charges of high treason for over ten years after the war.
The book will be published on February 20, 2018. As reviews come in, I will post these on this page for ease of reference.
