Lots of name dropping in this book. Perhaps it is a quirk of the main character, but there were endless references to who designed an outfit, the brand of champagne, etc, which I found tedious. Seemed a bit contrived. Haven't been able to finish the book. It moves quickly but didn't manage to keep my interest.

What an exciting ride I was taken on thanks to "The Art Broker"! Tons of twists and turns and the ending, totally not what I was expecting.  Very easy read thanks to the writing style of the author, Brian Hamm. Everything flowed nicely and the characters and scenery were so detailed I felt like I was right in the middle of Las Vegas with Jonah Devine. I liked the idea that this book was based on high end art, but wish I knew more about the subject because some things were a little confusing. That being said I would still recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a fast paced thriller with and loves surprise endings.  I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I'm not going to lie, this book was not my favorite. I'm not really for sure why as it looks as if it would appeal to me by the summary of the book, the cover and the artwork. Personally, I think I had a hard time relating to the setting as I just couldn't get into the Vegas mood that was set by the author. I think another reason I had a hard time relating was the characters were a little out of my league, I mean, I had no idea what "Mikado print," "a Tesla" and "Giuseppe Zanotti" were. I also felt a little confused as there were so many characters and the plot switched from character to character rather quickly, sometime I felt like a character would just pop out of no where and I hadn't really built a foundation of who that character was, like Watts, Devine's sidekick, who appears towards the end of the book. I wanted to give this book a fair shake though so I read it to the end and I'm glad I did. The last half of the book I really got into and ended up really liking it. The pace picked up for me and the twist and turns of the plot kept me wanting more! I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.

A great suspense thriller with an unpredictable ending. Sin City earned its name and this book shows you how. I can totally imagine a lot of what happens in this book to actually happen in Vegas to a certain degree. You never know who you can trust, as Jonah learned the hard way. I particularly enjoy the descriptive writing about the casinos and the works of art. Will definitely watch for future novels by Brain Hamm. Anyone who enjoys a good mystery will like this book!

The immediate opening scene involving a rather intense altercation sets the stage for this fast paced thrilling novel! Author, Brian Hamm has beautifully written the life of an art broker with a Vegas lifestyle. Passion, deceit, murder, and justice are all themes that can be found in The Art Broker. I found the story line quite fascinating and vivid in detail. Jonah Devine is the main character who is about to embark on a journey that will change his life, only not the way in which he was hoping. There are many twists and turns along the way and the ending is phenomenal! All loose ends are neatly tied together and it brings about a feeling of complete satisfaction from the reader once finished. I cannot wait to read more from this author! I would recommend this book to a more mature audience as there is adult content within the book. If you are one who loves some mystery laced with thrilling intensity, this book is for you. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Happy Reading!

Loved, love, loved this book! The action never stopped. I thought I had it all figured out once I got to know the players but at every twist and turn I was wrong. This would make a great movie. Fast read but I had to really pay attention to who and what was taking place. “I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.”

I thought this was a great book. Lots of twists and turns to keep you interested. The story line was very believable. The characters are detailed so you can picture them in your mind. At times it is very intense but that is why I enjoyed it so much. Loved the ending as I was not expecting it. I would highly recommend ** I received a free copy for an honest review**.
