the curse of van goghBlurb from, please scroll down for my review.

Tyler Sears, art thief, just released from a Federal prison, vows never again. He slides into a simple life bartending in NYC until one day an invitation arrives to the hottest art event of the season, where Tyler meets Komate Imasu, famed art collector. Suddenly Tyler’s vows of abstinence slip away as Imasu uses threats against Tyler’s family. Tyler quickly learns that gambling against a ruthless billionaire is never a good idea. Forgetting his own safety, Tyler plunges headfirst into a world of art forgers, hit men, Yakuza, a femme fatale named Chanel N°5, and the hideous curse of van Gogh, in order to pull off…the greatest art heist in history.

My Review

I was sent a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The idea of the plot is good, but I think there are a few holes in the storyline; there is some action, some travel, hit men, art theft, etc. And I enjoyed this loads, I enjoyed this book overall, I do like a good theft book, this was a little extreme, the theft that was going to take place, but it is a novel after all and can be whatever the author wants. I enjoyed all the details, the art, the weapons, etc. There is action, thrills, romance; this is an easy read that can be finished quickly. Good solid characters, plenty of background information, although some more for Lucy would have been nice. I enjoyed the cover and the title. This is the first in a series and I will be looking out for the second in the series.

Genre: art theft, thriller with some romance.
