5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, 1 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Goya Enigma (Kindle Edition)
I had this book on my Kindle for a while and hadn't got round to reading it. Being stuck on the rush hour train from Manchester I delved into my phone to see what I could read and came across Unearthing the Bones. I was immediately drawn in and after finishing this short story (& taster for the main event)I launched straight into Memory of Bones. A great read. The Goya angle was fascinating and, like other reviewers, I felt compelled to read up on Goya from other sources. Alex Connor obviously knows her stuff and it certainly doesn't feel like somebody has done some quick research for a book. You feel that the author is also immersed in art and its mysteries. Having reviewed Alex Connor before I mentioned the freshness of the Art World as a backdrop for the genre and I continue to enjoy the writing and setting. An interesting journey between Madrid, London and New York and the enigma of Goya and the Black Paintings. I had to suspend belief at one point when I felt frustration at Ben not involving the police when his character to that point suggested he should. However his actions better served the plot and suspense and for that I can forgive this.

One point I'd like to make (and I've made this before on other reviews) is that I noticed errors in the print of the Kindle version. Are these not properly proof read? Just a minor annoyance and not to take anything away from the great writing by Alex Connor. I'll be reading more of these.
