DEADLY PROVENANCE is a boiling cauldron of suspense mixing such disparate ingredients as a World War II-era murder, Nazi art confiscation, a forger’s deceit, an art thief’s duplicity, and a modern-day killers’ treachery. Lynne Kennedy masterfully turns up the heat under this lethal blend with her photographer and techno-geek, Maggie Thornhill who seeks justice by wit and digital photography software. The task seems impossible, but Thornhill is able to identify a missing Van Gogh from a photograph alone. Maggie’s investigation falls flat when her friend Ingrid, granddaughter of the prime suspect and member of the infamous Nazi organization responsible for the seizure European masterpieces, is murdered. Determined, Maggie heads to Paris convinced she has the recipe to find both the lost Van Gogh and the killer. In Paris, Maggie finds a bowlful of deceit, but she has discovered the ingredients. Still, this batter is not baked. When a forged Van Gogh comes to light, its owner is murdered. DEADLY PROVENANCE is a veritable layer cake of deception in the high-stakes art world. Maggie frosts the cake by revealing she possess the genuine Van Gogh in hopes of luring the killer to her. Just try to put this book down.

I thought the book "Deadly Provenance" was very exciting and kept me reading faster until I reached the end and the solution to the mystery.I was so excited that I went even further and obtained a copy of the video "Rape of Europa" that shows how the art was plundered by the Nazis' in World War 2. I also learned that the missing art piece by Van Gogh,"Vase with Oleanders", which is the basis for the novel, has still not been found to this date. The author, Lynne Kennedy, has educated me about art and written an interesting novel, although it is fiction has many aspects of true facts. Kudos to Lynne Kennedy...two thumbs up.
