Description: A stunning painting, a beautiful artist's model, the seductive city of Paris, what could possibly go wrong with Liam's attempts to start a new life in the city of his dreams? For antique dealer, Liam, the deal and gamesmanship are 'king', but when a deal goes wrong he is forced to flee London. He takes the Eurostar to Paris where he intends to start a new life. When he is taken ill he is rescued by Alouette, an ex-nightclub singer, and moves in with her. He discovers an artist with 'a touch of genius' and decides to set himself up as an art dealer, but his obsession with the artist's beautiful model threatens his new, peaceful life and leads him into danger. “Monsieur has done this before,” the woman said sternly, dipping her hand into the glass jar. “Bargaining, I mean.” “Many times,” Liam said with a smile. He didn’t mind her sour manner. He had won the deal, and that was all that mat­tered. ------------ A psychological thriller that reminded me strongly of Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr Ripley and Strangers on a Train. Liam’s travails in Paris, the art capital of the world and the city of his dreams, make page-turning reading, but in this world of mystery, drama and action those dreams may not turn out as he hopes: James Ferron Anderson, author Terminal City and The River and The Sea
