The Art of Murder
Murder, romance, Paris. A classic crime novel featuring betrayal and revenge set in the City of Light. Antique dealer, Liam, flees to Paris when a deal goes wrong. He meets Alouette, an ex-nightclub singer, and moves in with her when he becomes ill. Always searching for the next deal, he discovers an artist with a unique talent. His intentions to set himself up as an art dealer are foiled by his obsession with artist's stunning model. His knack for making poor decisions leads him further into trouble and, ultimately, into his worst nightmare. Will Alouette once again come to his rescue? An atomospheric tale of crime and punishment set in the magical city of Paris. Follow in Liam's footsteps, discovering the sights and smells of the city: the galleries, cafes, Montmartre, the left bank, the Seine, and Monet's lovely gardens in Giverny: "Monsieur has done this before," the woman said sternly, dipping her hand into the glass jar. "Bargaining, I mean." "Many times," Liam said with a smile. He didn't mind her sour manner. He had won the deal, and that was all that mat-tered. ------------------------- A psychological thriller that reminded me strongly of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr Ripley and Strangers on a Train. Liam's travails in Paris, the art capital of the world and the city of his dreams, make page-turning reading, but in this world of mystery, drama and action those dreams may not turn out as he hopes: James Ferron Anderson, author Terminal City and The River and The Sea
