Mystery in the museum is a story about the theft of a unique bracelet in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. This book is mostly intended for young adult. The author's purpose in this book is to entertain and puzzle the readers with its twisted plot. Mystery in the Museum is a very interesting and gripping book. In this book an art student, Ellen Tate, who works in the bookstore at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts is tied into the theft of a priceless Grecian gold bracelet. The theft occurs during a preview of Cezanne paintings on the evening of a terrible thunderstorm. When the power goes out during the dinner everyone is tense, thinking that someone might try to steal one of the Cezanne paintings, but everything is safe, except for the gold bracelet. During the investigation one of Ellen's friends is suspected when the supposed original of the bracelet was sent to her in the mail, but she believes differently and starts an investigation of her own. I think that this book is very entertaining because of the action and the fact that there is always a new suspect. The plot of this book is well organized and fast-paced; it does not drag on like some other mystery books. It is intriguing for its information on ancient gold artwork and the phenomenon on forgery. This book definitely achieves the author's goals by creating a puzzling and twisted edge to the end of the book. Mystery in the Museum is an interesting and griping book that would catch the attention of any young adult. It is action packed, and has a mysteriously twisted edge to the end. I found the book very gripping and entertaining. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good, puzzling read.
