The main plot covers a short time period leading up to the presidential election in the United States. The story is fast paced, and the novel is hard to put down once you get involved in the plot. There are lots of people with guns, and some collateral damage. The advantage shifts back and forth between good guys and bad guys, but the good guys have some unexpected allies, and sometimes there is a "falling out among thieves."
There is a final wrap-up set a year later.
There are some technical explanations of both psychological loss of senses (in this case sight), and of the heightened senses some people develop. This last point was interesting as I have always been able to sense people behind me, but did not know how to account for that ability.
Mosaic tells about Creighton Redmond, a presidential candidate who will stop at nothing to gain the White House. Julia Austrian, a blind concert pianist, and niece to Creighton, who regains her sight just in time to see her Mother murdered. The connection between Julia's mother and Sam Keeline, a CIA agent, is a package both receive, and neither is given the chance to read. The sender, is none other than Lyle Redmond, Creighton's Father, who has been declared insane and installed into a guarded nursing home to prevent his escape. At the heart of the mystery is the fabled Amber Room.
The book was a fast-paces read with all too believable characters..
Her mother's brothers, a presidential candidate, a successful banker and a wealthy software developer have declared their father, a thief of NAZI treasures, incompetent so that they could use and abuse his money. The blind niece knows too much, so she has to go and that is why those assassins on her trail in this book that runneth over with action and intrigue. A stellar performance by Gayle Lynds.
