An okay book. Not great, but okay.
The book is a cosy mystery - enough murders to make things interesting, but all the suspects escape capture. Oddly, even the art that was stolen was questionable at best, and possible a fraud. All the good guys did get home safe.
Yet the reader never gets the satisfaction that all is done.
On the other hand, one can hope that Book 2 (being released simultaneously with this tome) or 3 (being released in Fall 2016) of this series will pull together threads that were left dangling in Book 1. (Hint: having started Book 2, it appears that some of those threads may be pulled together.) This reader felt like he was in the middle of a mystery centered soap opera (minus the sensuality) that might go on for quite some time.
I guess I will need to wait to be satisfied. ______________
