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.
