About the Author
Ritter Ames lives atop a high green hill in the country with her husband and Labrador retriever, and spends each day globe-trotting the art world from her laptop with Pandora blasting into her earbuds. Often with the dog snoring at her feet. Much like her Bodies of Art Mysteries, Ritter’s favorite vacations start in London, then spiral out in every direction. She’s been known to plan trips after researching new books, and keeps a list of “can’t miss” foods to taste along the way.

For those of you following along, we may have traded in the well-used Prada for a Fendi since book one, but the purse pockets still hold mysterious tools and equipment to assist the action and fun that ensues. Bravo to a sequel that is even more exciting than the first book. Keeping my seat belt fastened for the next in the series and hate having to wait for it. Write faster, please!
(Notes to self: Go to Italy. Spend night on yacht. Seek handsome British sidekicks.)
Laurel is a well known fine arts critic, and to her selected few, a competent art thief, for purposes of reclaiming stolen artifacts and paintings, of course.
Laurel had in the first novel of this series, been hunting to reclaim a famous snuff box. The first book was filled with action and surprises, as is this subsequent novel. The novel picks up with Laurel joining forces with a British agent, at least she thinks Jack Hawke is an agent, he might just be another incredibly talented art thief. Jack is also after the snuff box.
This novel has us traveling the length of Florida, over to London, and ending in Florence, Italy. We encounter Mob bosses, art and car thiefs, and dead bodies that come alive again.
This was an exciting mystery novel, and leads into the next volume which I fully expect to be as thrilling. Great series.
There is a strong on-going story line in this series involving an upcoming art heist, so I definitely recommend you read these books in order. In fact, I wish I had read this one closer to the first. The author does do a good job of filling in the blanks on what has happened before, which helped me remember the events of the first book. The story starts strong and keeps going from twist to turn as the pages fly by, resolving enough to make this book feel like it has resolved while still leaving plenty for Laurel and Jack to face in the next book. The duo make for intriguing leads, and the characters we meet along the way hold our interest as well.
Marked Masters, second book in the Bodies of Art series, is as fast-paced and heart-thumping as the first book. Laurel Beacham is like the James Bond of the Art world. Knowledgeable Art Critic by day, cat-suited art burglar retrieving stolen art to send it back to it’s rightful place. The author submerses all your senses in this well written, intricately plotted gem of a book. I’ll be picking up Book Three soon!
I highly recommend this book and this series and know you'll love it!
