When Gustav Nikulasson is killed in a plane crash, Kathrine, his journalist daughter, has questions about the circumstances surrounding his death and his missing work. When Kathrine goes looking for the answers she accidentally uncovers a conspiracy.
When Kathrine is kidnapped by Enrique Quisette, an art smuggler and a man willing to do anything to get what he wants, Kathrine finds herself heading toward her answers. Now her only chance of survival is her friend Sheppard Wilde.
Wilde will use every resource he can to get her back but will it be enough and will he be in time?
This was another interesting novel. I found it to be complex and entertaining in its own ways but in all honesty I also found it to be kind of slow paced for me. I know that sounds counteractive but I found certain parts of this novel very entertaining, while the rest remained slow.
Kathrine is an interesting character, struggling with the grief over the loss of her father accompanied with her unanswered questions. She also has many questions for her friend Mr. Wilde who was close with her father around the time of his death.
Mr. Wilde is a very connected character that I was sorry to find, was very two-dimensional. I would have very much liked to have learned more about him.
Enrique Quisette is very much a cookie cutter bad guy. He was bad for the same reasons any other bad guy is, with a faulty self-perception, and minions who do most of the bad guying for him. Needless to say, I found this character to be highly unoriginal.
I would give this novel three out of five stars and would recommend it to fans of architecture and adventure.
I received my copy of this novel from my sister and the picture above is my own.
