Overview

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Lucifer Gospel

There is truth in art. But the truth can kill.

Young archaeologist Finn Ryan is laboring for a London auction house when she gets some unlikely luck. Along with the handsome young nobleman Billy Pilgrim, she's inherited a house in Amsterdam, a cargo ship off Borneo South Pacific, and what appears to be a fake Rembrandt.

But the fake hides a real Rembrandt portrait, which in turn hides a clue to a centuries-old mystery. Finn and Billy aren't the only ones who know what is at stake-and what is waiting to be found at the bottom of the South Pacific. Pursued around the globe by ruthless adversaries, Finn and Billy are thrown into the hunt for a forgotten treasure that could change their lives forever-or end their lives in an instant.

Christopher is still having problems with pace. The book is incredibly long-winded and much of the information is superfluous. The plot gets bogged down until close to the end, when it finally picks up to explain the conclusion. Too many characters doing toi many conflicting things makes the story confusing as the reader tries to figure out where the story is going. A bit of a chore to read. Stephanie Clanahan

The author of this book seems to think that for any written work of fantasy you need: stunning people, as many pop-culture references as possible, descriptions of as many exotic locations as you can find on wikipedia and most of all every stereotype in existence. Your readers will then fill in the important blanks and buy your next novel. Paul Christopher gets as many details right as he gets them wrong. His research into Dutch culture is as accurate as his strange misspellings of words anyone using Google translate can figure out. Perhaps this is the very first novel completely spun from Wikipedia?Besides the sloppiness of all the local cultural and physical details, the author didn't seem to have re-read his own story. At one point a crusty old curator and painting restorer uses the word Giggle to mention Google. A good approximation and it paints a nice picture of someone out of touch with reality. Basically a nice stereo type. Then a few sentences later this same character seems to be very familiar with the work of Quentin Tarantino. It's these strange hiccups all along the reader's path that makes this book so infuriating.In the end everything plays out as you would have expected. After all the weird coincidences that seem to make this plot possible, the ending is as predictable as your basic chick lit mixed with some Indiana Jones themes. Oh by the way, Rembrandt's ghost has absolutely nothing to do with the plot.

The 3 books with Finn Ryan in them are really great. Lucifer's Gospel and Michelangelos Notebook are terrific, also.
