The Art Forger - B.A. Shapiro
3.5 stars: I enjoyed learning about the art world, art history and painting techniques as it is a topic that I know very little about. The mystery, although fictionalized, is centred around a true art heist in Boston. In 1990, 13 works of art were stolen from the Isabella Stuart Gardner museum and have never been recovered.

I enjoyed the historical detail, the art world setting and the mystery however, I didn't love the characters - the author just didn't bring them to life for me.

If you like to get immersed in characters, their motivations and back stories, you might want to give this one a miss however, if you enjoy a good mystery woven together with interesting real-world events, pick this book up.
