I found this book to be interesting enough to stay up late to finish it, however, the ending kind of left me feeling like 'but, what happened then?' I would have liked reading about more mystery/history attached to the objects and I would have liked to see more of a struggle to gain all the pieces of the Cleopatra jewelry. It was all just a bit too easy. The last thing that bothered me was as the book went on there seemed to be more 'language' inserted. I'll admit that it would probably not bother most people but it does affect how I feel about a book. I would, however, still read a sequel if there is one.

If you like adventures and mystery and don't want to get bogged down with unnecessary details, this books is for you! It is easy reading, seems to flow magically, and very enticing. Once you start reading you do not want to put it down until you find out what happened. Oh, I forgot--you have to come up with your own ending. If you are looking for an entertaining book to read in a matter of days vs. weeks, this book is for you!

If you've ever been thrilled by the escapades of "gentleman thieves" like Thomas Crown or Arsène Lupin, or day-dreamed of an opportunity that is almost-but-not-quite too good to be true, then Artful Misdirection will be your flute of bubbly.

When respectable and normally-honest NY antique dealer Bill St. Clair receives an alabaster vase with a bas relief of Queen Nefertiti making an offering to the gods, he also gets a visit from a Manhattan Special Forces agent investigating a Museums and Galleries Theft. The vase filled with humble daffodils sitting on St. Clair's dining room table will not escape the notice of readers with an eye for Hitchcockian irony. The detective's visit sets Bill to thinking: What if his reliable source sent him a vase that might be worth a little bit more than he thought? Or much, much more?

New Yorker Stella Duchene, now established in Paris as an interior designer to the rich-and-famous, has a taste for excitement and riches that justifies her delivering black-market artefacts to private collectors around the world. Returning from a NY delivery, she routes through London to help out her mentor on a local job. He turns up dead, but Stella resourcefully rescues the objet d'art, only a step ahead of someone who wants it as much as she does.

Henderson and Ledbetter twist and weave the two stories into a grand finale of quasi-virtue versus greed with the pace and character insight that make the reader like these folk enough to invite them for lunch -- and count the silverware before they leave.

I found this book very engaging. Egyptology and suspense are two of my favorite things. They go together well here. It was hard to put down.
