If you have enjoyed Peter Mayle "A Year in Provence" you will love the details of this high stakes art heist. This is a great read, light fun, great details, good food and a fun story line. It will make you want to check out his other novels.
A fun read. Adventure, mystery, romance. Not too complicated, but just enough intrigue to keep you interested. Fast moving and well written.
Pleasant, easy reading, in the best possible sense (well-written, but in a non-show-off-y way). I love Peter Mayle's books and this is a good one.
I love the way Peter Mayle uses words. "He passed the seething racket of Forty-second Street and the New York lions, massive and benign in the sunshine, looking as dignified as lions can look with garlands of pigeons clustered on their heads." Perfect word pictures!
