Following Jack from country to country was actually really exciting. The way in which Ken Fry wrote this novel makes one think, as it takes them on the journey and places them smack-bang right in the middle. You breathe, Jack breathes. You hold your breath, Jack holds his.
A vast amount of history is woven into this story, from the concentration camps to the present, which showcases Ken Fry’s ability to write and his clear knowledge of research shines through. Which ultimately gives the story the foundation needed. In a single word to describe this fabulous book, it would be: 'Riveting'
Highly recommended, for a page turning, edge of your seat read.
With the narrative often going back to the time of Mikhail, I was at times torn between which story I was enjoying more. I think I would have equally liked this if it had been simply a tale of the young painter’s life in Russia. The hunt for his lost paintings was very well written, reminiscent of a Dan Brown novel. And the relationship struggles of Jack Manton and Tamsin Greene carried well throughout the novel, making you really care about them. Wonderful storytelling in the blending of all of these different elements. But it did make me wonder a bit if you patterned your artist Mikhail after Isaak Brodsky.
As I said, very nice work and an easy five-star review.

Jack Manton finds two pieces of Russian art while investigating on the internet and goes to Australia to retrieve them. From that point on him and his lover Tamsin, end up in an international crime scheme to acquire all of that artist's paintings.
While looking for additional paintings, Jack and Tamsin's travel from London to other European countries putting a puzzle of history and intrigue together. Unbeknown to them, an elusive criminal is following their every step, that turns into a thrilling give and take which interests Interpol.
People end up dead; paintings are missing, and a hunt for wealth pursue. The game will end in events that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Not all ends rosy in this Thriller, but I liked that. The couple and the criminals learn lessons they will never forget. However, life goes on.
Mr. Fry's characters are engaging, exciting, and colorful. The background work of each country traveled by the characters is well-developed and easy to follow.
Ken Fry's novel is worth a few Russian rubles.
Jack and Tamsin are determined to find and recover all of the lost "Brodsky" painting from the great 20th Century Russian painter who had died in a German Concentration Camp in World War II. Their journey takes them from England, to Australia, to Russia and finally to France, where they encounter wealthy, unprincipled art collectors prepared to kill and do whatever it takes to "own" a Brodsky.
A fantastic book that kept me riveted until the very last page. I will be looking at more from Fry. He is a vastly talented author.
