Back on track

Although some might say it's nothing new, with goodies and baddies chasing each other through various countries, False Impression has sufficient convolutions to keep you reading, and the pace increases as you read. Typical Archer stuff, a good story

Starts Strong - Runs out of Gas

This story hits the ground running with a good deal of excitement and international mystery. The ending becomes clear about 3/4 of the way in, and I found myself scanning to the end. But - an enjoyable read on a cross country flight - or for the beach.

    Another Thriller by Jeffrey Archer

    A great leisure time read.....grabs your attention at the beginning and doesn't let go until the very end! Inateresting plot has lots of twists and turns. Interesting characters....from the power-hungry financier, to the administrative assistant with a dark past and a hidden agenda, to the FBI agent, and the English countess. All combine to make this a very enjoyable reading experience.

    I enjoyed this one!

    It may not be one of Archer's best books, but it was a fun read. I enjoyed it, the characters and the plot. In fact, I could not put it down for long.

    True Archer

    Finally Archer has started writing fiction with his personal style again. Fast moving, entertaining, with the twists and turns of previous novels. If you are a fan of Archer, you'll definitely enjoy the this new story.

    exciting thriller

    On the night of September 10, 2001, Englishwoman Victoria Wentworth plans to ship Van Gogh¿s classic Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear that she owns to Bryce Fenston, CEO of New York based Fenston Finance Victoria expects Fenston to sell the masterpiece to a Japanese collector. That same evening someone breaks into Victoria¿s home, kills her, and slices off an ear the Van Gogh is stolen. On September 11, 2001, a plane crashes into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Fenston Finance employee Anna Petrescu manages to escape from the edifice before the tower collapses. She knows that Fenston was planning to keep the Van Gogh painting and that everyone assumes she died in the tragedy. Not correcting the latter, Anna intercepts the Van Gogh. However, goons chase her as she flees London for Hong Kong FBI Agent Jack Delaney is also in hot pursuit as he sees a link between Fenston and the homicides of three collectors besides Wentworth who were employing him as an intermediary. The globe converges on Anna who now tries to vanish in Bucharest with a Fed and an assassin after her. --- This exciting thriller goes over the top, but no reader is going to care as the escapades of Anna fleeing with the painting with a Fed and a lethal female assassin on her trail makes for quite a tense duel. The story line is ultra fast-paced never slowing down from the first impression especially once Anna realizes that everyone assumes she died in the North Tower tragedy until the final triangular confrontation between the good, the bad and the ugly. --- Harriet Klausner
