The Trouble with Mirrors
An Alix London Mystery
Charlotte and Aaron Elkins
Alix London, better known as the “art whisperer” has an antique mirror that was given to her by an old family friend known as Tiny, when she was a child. Alix doesn't think the mirror is particularly valuable, more of a keepsake really. But when she and the mirror are pictured on the cover of an international art magazine someone breaks into her Seattle condo and steals it.
Soon after the theft Tiny disappears. Alix, along with the help of her friend Chris, have to try and track down Tiny in order to find out the truth behind the mirror. Is it a valuable work, and could it be something that was stolen many years ago in Italy. The only problem is that the Italian mafia is also looking for Tiny and that might make Alix's search all the more dangerous.
This was a fun, entertaining and absorbing mystery. I liked the characters and the fact that it had several story lines running through the book. All in all, it was engaging, well told and an enjoyable read.
Thanks to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest view.
