An adrenaline-fueled adventure set in the Netherlands, Croatia, Italy, and Turkey about stolen art, the mafia, and a father's vengeance.

When researcher Zelda Richardson begins working at a local museum, she doesn't expect to get entangled with an art theft, knocked unconscious by a forger, threatened by the mob, or stalked by drug dealers.

To make matters worse, a Croatian gangster is convinced Zelda knows where a cache of recently pilfered paintings is. She must track down an international gang of art thieves and recover the stolen artwork in order to save those she loves most.

The trouble is, Zelda doesn't know where to look. Teaming up with art detective Vincent de Graaf may be her only hope at salvation. The trail of clues leads Zelda and Vincent on a pulse-pounding race across Europe to a dramatic showdown in Turkey that may cost them their lives.

The novels in the Zelda Richardson Mystery Series are stand-alone stories that can be read in any order.

Review quote

"In Marked for Revenge, Alderson once again dishes the inside scope on the museum world, but this time combines it with a clever art heist plot that will keep you turning pages right to the end .This is the most entertaining Zelda Richardson tale yet." - author Anne Janzer

"This is the perfect book for those who love history, mysteries toss in some good old fashion suspense and Marked For Revenge is the perfect read. The author bring history, art to life bringing readers into her world and keeps them there wanting more after the stories ends." - Heidi W, NetGalley review

"Marked For Revenge is an art heist mystery, and I always like anything involving art and theft. This is the first book I've read by the author. I found it to be complex and thought provoking. The answers are not obvious or predictable. The characters are likeable, intelligent and engaging. Overall, this is a solid mystery for anyone interested in art theft." - Jamie B, NetGalley review

""Marked for Revenge: An Art Heist Thriller" is a fast pacing and page turning book. This novel is easy to read and extremely well done. The plot is well developed and characters are well designed... The story is about stolen artwork, art forgeries, crimes and drug traffickers. But it is also on postmodern painting, museums and Amsterdam. Jennifer S. Alderson (the Author) carried out outstanding research on painting, postmodern art and did a great job describing places in Amsterdam and in Turkey where a part of the story takes place... I highly recommend this book particularly to those who like fast pacing thrillers." - Achour A, NetGalley review
