The tension is gripping throughout, and the author has an amazing ability to bring the reader into the main character's head. This novel made me feel the driving ambition, the fear and the triumphs along with the main character. Excellent writing, and a book that's almost impossible to put down.
The narrative, totally from the point of view of opera diva Josephine Lavelle, limits the reader to what Josephine experiences, knows, feels, thinks etc.
In the process we know her in depth, far more than people we know in real life as we each choose most of what we expose to the world.
It is also difficult for a writer to carry off well, not sneaking in clues as asides. Pywell handles this expertly.
Josephine, desperate to restart her career and once again BE Tosca, is thrust into a situation where she has possession of a golden artifact, lost treasure stolen by and then from the Nazis.
Her dilemma is how to protect the artifact while trying to decide who really owns it and to whom she should give it.
The wonderful music of Tosca intertwines through the novel, and there are also loose parallels to the Tosca story, which add to the pleasure in reading.
So many books are enjoyed for the moment and then forgotten. This book creates a hold on memory.
The Golden Icon is the prequel to the author's Mikky dos Santos series.
With believable characters that bring alive the plot, the strands of this story and pulled together nicely so that it made it an enjoyable read.
