FALSE IMPRESSION REVIEW,
This review is from: False Impression (Hardcover)
Like him or not (and the last reviewer rather obviously does not, and probably didn’t even read the book) Jeffrey Archer knows how to write a great thriller. His first novel since his release from prison is an amazing chase around the world.
The book starts with a breathtaking account of an escape from the World Trade Centre on 9/11. The story follows the heroine (Anna Petrescu who is missing presumed dead) chase around the world, after she uncovers why Lady Victoria Wentworth was brutally murdered. All the time she must stay one step ahead of various villains (a New York banker and his Lawyer / a hit woman and even the FBI).
A priceless Van Gogh is the prize for all the characters, including Nakamura San.
The book is also well researched, and peppered with facts about the art world, the world trade centre, and Van Gogh’s paintings. Anyone who liked the mix of the art world, espionage and intrigue in The Da Vinci code, will be equally happy with this novel.
We recommend *****.
