Another page turner
on 28 March 2006
Jeffrey Archer's return to thrilling fiction in FALSE IMPRESSION -- set in post-9/11 features a strong woman protagonist, who is both an art lover & Van Gogh expert, working in the acquisitions department of a finance corporation. She has learnt that her employer has a hidden agenda, that would make money-hawkers look like saints.
On the morning of that fateful day Anna is unceremoniously fired over an alleged failure in securing a Van Gogh deal, the work having been stolen & the owner murdered. Moments later American Airlines Flight 11 slams into the North Tower of the World Trade Center & in the aftermath everyone thinks Anna has perished.
Anna, however, is very much alive, & fired by thoughts of revenge & restoring the Van Gogh to its rightful owners, she sets out around the world to find the stolen treasure, with an FBI agent & an assassin dogging her footsteps, yet it is only after returning to New York that she finally unravels the mystery.
From the moment you pick this up, you will not want to put it down. Like all the best books, you just keep turning the pages until you have read the last one.
