Pleasing and Plausible,
This review is from: A Dangerous Talent (An Alix London Mystery) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With so many `wham-bang' thrillers on the market it is gratifying to come across a crime novel embracing a well conceived plot that is rational and logical. `A Dangerous Talent' is written in an easy to read straightforward and flowing style at an even pace, with excellent dialogue between characters and with much humour. The intriguing context is artworld forgery and the genre is a combination of mystery, murder and `who dunnit' involving a number of clever twists. The main protagonist is engaging and there are credible relationships with all other characters throughout a narrative where any violence is limited to that necessary to the plot, nothing sexual is portrayed other than a romantic interest, and there is no foul language other than mild expletives. How refreshing! Furthermore `A Dangerous Talent' reaches a properly considered satisfying conclusion where there are no loose ends. An excellent 5-star read!
