Editorial Reviews


"The fast pace and thriller-style action are refreshing... Add in an engaging, tentacled plot... Seat belt required!" - Ellie's Reads
"This fast-paced, action-filled whodunit was enjoyable and hard to put down. The mystery was good, the characters are likeable and it was fun to watch all the pieces come together in this well-written drama. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series." - Dru's Book Musings
"A high-octane, fast-paced thrill ride of a mystery adventure that will definitely leave you anxious for the next installment." - Girl with Book Lungs

"From motorcycle chases with semi-automatics to rock climbing to schmoozing up to the hot shots, this book has what I look for in an art heist mystery.  I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in mystery with some danger, exciting chases,  and a solid story.  Five out of five beans from me!" - Bean's Bookshelf and Coffee Break
"An enjoyable read...The story is crafted in such a way to keep readers guessing." - A Cozy Book Nook
"I love the main character of, well-plotted read. I could not put this book down...if you like a mystery with a touch of James Bond, you should be reading Counterfeit Conspiracies." - Cheryl Green, MyShelf Reviews
"I'm looking forward to...what kind of hot water Laurel Beacham will fall into next, and whether Jack Hawkes will push her into it, fish her out of it, or both!" - Reading Reality
"I was intrigued from the first that I picked it up. The style reminded be very much of those 1960's, you know the ones where the women and men all dressed in posh, stylish outfits, yet still managed to kick some felt classy, yet current." - Musings and Ramblings
"From the moment I started reading, I just couldn't's a great mix and the story is well-balanced. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced mystery."- I Heart Reading
"Counterfeit Conspiracies by Ritter Ames is a smartly written, well-plotted story of a jet-setting 'art retriever'Laurel, who is the perfect mix of art connoisseur, action figure, and fashionista. I loved the international travel, Laurel's sidekicks, and the handsome mystery man, Jack. A fast paced story I couldn't put down." -Vision and Verse

About the Author

Ritter Ames is the USA Today Bestselling author of the Bodies of Art Mysteries series, published by Henery Press. When she's not writing or brainstorming new mysteries Ritter is usually trying to get her favorite yellow lab to stay out of the pond, or keep her grouchy black cat from trying to give the dog away on Freecycle. Ritter would love to live on a boat and write from far flung locations around the globe, but the dog would constantly have to be fished from the water, and her husband and cat would just complain endlessly about the dog's smell, so staying on land seems to be the only good option to keep her sanity and not get sidetracked from writing.

Ritter tries to blog regularly at and subscribe there to get the latest news about upcoming releases, and inside scoops on her characters and series. She uses her Pinterest boards at to capture great places and ideas she wants to use in both series. Follow her blog and boards to learn more about Ritter and her upcoming books. You can find her Facebook author page at and Follow her on Twitter @RitterAmes.
