Riis – the Gunrunner family

Leaving the war behind, but not necessarily the job as an agent for whoever he was serving, the late Einar Riis Johannessen became a self-made aircraft broker and a Norwegian Honorary Consul to Rome. Not trusting anyone – especially none of his own family – the late Consul appointed me to be the testamentary executor of his will thus appointing me to protect his rights and to dig out whatever I could find of assets before dividing the estate.
