“...While this is not a lengthy book we jump quickly between settings and meet many people, so we can't relax. With rumours of tomb raiders in Peru, the crimes clearly don't stop with auctioneers. Along the route we visit creepy cellars, the Louvre, and other fine buildings. ... Through the voice of a character we gain insights into what makes a person into a collector and how the pursuit of the next item can become a kind of drug. The desire to be powerful and controlling lasts even after THE COLLECTOR has died in this pacy thriller. Anne-Laure Thiéblemont has based the story on her own reporting of art crime and meetings with collectors while a journalist. If this lacing of history with art and danger lures you, the Marion Spicer Art Mystery series will definitely be for you.” —Fresh Fiction. Read full review here.
