Welcome to Cavan Bridge Press. We began as a professional theater production collective, cultivating new works by emerging playwrights and adapting short works of fiction to bring their stories from the page to the stage. In 2017 we launched a book publishing division, Cavan Bridge Press, to help amplify this mission. We’re still getting warmed up, but have a lot of great plans. Have a look at what we’re up to. We hope you’ll come back for more. Be sure to check out our latest releases!
Congratulations to Carol Orange and the hardworking team at GFP and Cavan Bridge Press on A Discerning Eye , an international museum heist mystery set against the backdrop of the Colombian drug trade. Available everywhere books are sold, including independent bookstores, Bookshop.com, Ingram and Amazon.
Art dealer Portia Malatesta is devastated when she learns that thirteen works of art were robbed from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. To help uncover the whereabouts of the artwork, she sets out to construct a psychological profile of the thief. By analyzing the common theme linking the stolen pieces, she suspects the mastermind behind the heist is obsessed with the interplay of dark and light—not only in art, but also in life. Te FBI enlists Portia’s help in a high-stakes sting operation to recover the stolen works of art—a dangerous proposition that will take her to Colombia, where she’ll have to earn the trust of a notorious drug lord’s married daughter. Risking everything, Portia must navigate the underworld of Medellín—a complicated web of politics, pride, and ugly crimes—where a single misstep could have deadly consequences. Inspired by history’s largest art heist, A Discerning Eye is a fast-paced, skillfully plotted journey in which the fate of some of the world’s most prized masterpieces depends on one woman’s perceptive cunning.
