4.0 out of 5 stars A Dangerous Talent, 5 April 2012
This review is from: A Dangerous Talent (An Alix London Mystery) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Alix London is an art restorer, whose father Geoff was recently in prison for forgery. This naturally causes Alix some embarrassment and she is hoping it doesn't stop her getting a new job when she goes to meet a collector who wants expert advice on a purchase. Chris LeMay is buying a painting for $2.9 million and wants Alix to check it is not a forgery. Her friend Liz Coane owns the gallery which is selling the painting and Alix accompanies Chris to give her opinion.

What follows is a fun mystery, with Alix a great character - slightly flawed, intelligent and capable. Chris is slightly outrageous and a good foil and there is some love interest with an FBI agent who is investigating the sale of expensive art forgeries to foreign buyers. This is a cosy mystery, there are bodies but nothing gruesome, and the art background gives the book a very interesting setting. I really enjoyed this and, as the end of the book suggested this is the first in a series, I would certainly read on.

Great informative review ever thought of taking up book reviewing as a job. You told me just enough to get me interested in the book but not so much that you spoilt the plot .
