5.0 out of 5 stars It's Almost Like the Cold War is Back, 7 Jan 2008
Laurel Whitehead (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Mosaic (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the kind of thriller that many of us used to bury our faces in for a weekend when the cold war was in full swing, frosty and icy. Remember those wonderful cold war writers. Remember how their spies used to zip from merry old England to the Continent and back, oftentimes with a trip to D.C. or some third world hell hole. Remember how the bodies used to pile up as our heroes fought for truth, justice and democracy against the evil reds. Well, Gayle Lynds' MOSAIC is a thriller written in that vein. For a diehard weekend reader it's almost like the cold war is back. From start to finish, as you rush from London to Washington, to New York, to Paris with our heroine, a blind concert pianist on the run from numerous ex-CIA assassins as she desperately tries to find out who murdered her mother and why.

Her mother's brothers, a presidential candidate, a successful banker and a wealthy software developer have declared their father, a thief of NAZI treasures, incompetent so that they could use and abuse his money. The blind niece knows too much, so she has to go and that is why those assassins on her trail in this book that runneth over with action and intrigue. A stellar performance by Gayle Lynds and a book that'll have you right back in the bookstore looking for her next offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Drawer Conspiracy Thriller, 6 Sep 2011
Nightman (St Albans UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Mosaic (Paperback)
Lynds must be the most underrated author of Espionage on the planet. Excellent plotting, plenty of action, great dialogue and she even knows how to write a good ending which most authors fall down on. Makes some of the so called big names like Patterson and Baldacchi look like total amateurs (which they are now of course).
