I tried to twice to find my rhythm with this novel but I couldn’t. I gave up before reaching 25%. I found the flipping between past and present and multiple characters sharing the same happenings confusing and disruptive to the story. The violence was too brutal for me, I had anticipated it being a mystery book around art but not as harsh as it is. I see the series has several positive reviews and I’m sure fans will thoroughly enjoy this one. I had not read the previous ones. It’s a two out of five on the enJOYment scale.
From the back cover:
Trudi Coffey only realizes that she hasn’t seen Samuel Hill in weeks when the FBI shows up asking questions about him. After a strange encounter with an armed man demanding her help and an attack by a member of the Boston mob looking for someone named Dream, Trudi manages to find Samuel–or rather, he finds her. He’s made some pretty powerful enemies, but right now his full attention is on protecting Dream from the mob. Because Dream has something they want–the map to the location of artwork stolen from the Gardener Museum during the infamous 1990 heist.
With danger closing in from all sides, Trudi and Samuel will have to call on all of their allies to keep Dream safe and discover the identity of the people who have been hunting down Samuel. The real questions are whom can they trust? And who will make it out of this thing alive?
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Revell through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
