This is typical plot driven thriller fare with the creative premise of the reappearance of a long lost painting from the Gardner Museum heist at its center Secrets, lies, attempts at selling the masterpiece combined with a plucky, precocious protagonist round out a quick and fast paced read. I love everything about this book the characters and their relationships, the complex plot and syncopated pacing, the red herring that launches everything, the credible conflicts and mounting tension, and especially the small observations and clever turns of phrase that give the prose so much depth and personality The story flirts with being ludicrous but never falls off that cliff, imbuing a sense of fun to the whole endeavor, punctuated with poignant moments of raw emotion A rare combination of action filled page turner with beautiful writing about genuine characters. Received this book from Goodreads for an HONEST REVIEW I m barely giving this a 3 BARELY.Takes way too long to make a point on what s going on Redundant REDUNDANT There is no meat to this story Takes 3 or 4 pages to describe a tiny event and then repeats it over and over again It is not a page turner Although I did fast forward really fast On to the next book.
