Nighthawks by Lambert Nagle

4 Stars from me

This book is bursting with intrigue and I found a huge amount of it to be genuinely fascinating.

I really loved the art history / forgery / black market sales side of it really interesting. Add to that a whiff of the mafia, a corrupt cop and failed romance it soon becomes a highly addictive thriller.

Stephen Connor was a good character to follow, although I couldn’t help thinking that he could have easily resolved the romantic side of his problems just by having a few conversations. He seemed to let all sorts of things ‘just happen’ which was a little infuriating.

Nighthawks had a very nice, neat storyline with some lovely quirky touches – I particularly enjoyed the horse painting at show and tell.

Overall, a very enjoyable read with some wonderful imagery thrown in!

My thanks to the author and to Rachel’s Random Resources for letting me be a part of this blog tour.

Blurb: When art, money and power collide… A Mafia boss addicted to beautiful art. A Catholic priest who knows too much. A modern-day Jay Gatsby. And a woman on the run.

Disgraced London detective Stephen Connor is given an ultimatum: take a transfer to Rome or kiss his career goodbye.

With his love life in tatters and his confidence at an all-time low, can Stephen find the world’s most valuable painting before it disappears forever?
