Exciting Spy Novel Debut For Cozy Readers
Reviewed in the United States on January 16, 2017
This novel debut introduces us into the world of Art. Especially the art that is faked, stolen, and sold behind the scenes. When a wealthy person takes ownership of an item of great antiquity, who do you hire to return it to it's rightful owner?
This book follows such a person skilled in defense, educated in fine art, and quite the daring spy. Her name is Laurel Beacham from America but located throughout the world. Laurel is tired after a botched assignment and looking forward to a vacation back in her home country, when, a precious ancient artifact is said to have surfaced and needs transport back to authenticators. I won't tell you what the article is as that is a major part of the tale.
Laurel knows she isn't the only game in town...There is the arch-enemy, Moran, and now a glimmer of a third party interested, and not for the good of mankind. Laurel doesn't know who to trust when her contact goes missing.
Enter Jack Hawke. Is he friend or foe? Well, Laurel doesn't know and neither did I. It is a fun and exciting meeting though and I think you will enjoy the chase.
This book takes you through Italy, London, France and you will need your reading passport.
This was a good mystery. It is a female James Bond style. Enjoy!
