What a great art history mystery!!! This was such an interesting book about artwork lost during WWII being located and reunited with survivors and their families. Zelda was an incredibly dogged amateur investigator. Even though she did go a bit overboard and get herself into trouble at times she was determined as hell to find out what really happened. I admire that in a character. I loved Fredrick her compliant guy friend too. He was such a good sport. The whole process of reuniting paintings with their original owners seemed so tedious yet satisfying. The story about the painting Irises was just fascinating. It was heartbreaking, beautiful and tragic.
There were parts of the book that were a bit drawn out like the museum meetings themselves and some of Zelda’s internal thoughts but nothing too extreme.
This audiobook was well produced. The parts of all the Dutch characters were really well done as were those of all the other characters. Each one easy to understand while still being distinct.
I’m excited to listen to the next book in the series. I look forward to seeing what else Zelda gets herself involved in.
Amazing job by the author putting every bit of the story together. The historical background of Amsterdam combined with a thrilling story of stolen pieces of art perfectly entwined...Only thing is it has a slow start. BUT stay there, DONT quit as it will just get better.
While I didn't like how some of the characters were narrated, as I had to speed up the narration in some parts .Still think it was a decent job and very professionally done!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
This has all the ingredients of a great mystery story: plucky heroine, machiavellian villains, interesting background, and lost of twists and turns culminating in a gripping finale.
The narration is good, with the narrator managing to take on the voices of the different characters and inject emotions of excitement, fear, frustration and anxiety into her reading.
Recommended for fans of mysteries especially those with an interest in art.
