When art conservator Alix London spots a forgery, she knows trouble will follow. So she’s understandably apprehensive when her connoisseur’s eye spots something off about a multimillion-dollar Jackson Pollock painting at Palm Springs’s Brethwaite Museum - her current employer.
Alix is already under fire, the object of a vicious online smear campaign. Now the Brethwaite’s despicable senior curator, obsessed with the "maximization of monetized eyeballs," angrily refuses to decommission the celebrated Pollock piece. But it’s only when a hooded intruder attacks Alix in her hotel room that the real trouble begins. And when FBI Special Agent Ted Ellesworth - with whom Alix had inadvertently, but thoroughly, botched a budding relationship just a year prior - turns up to investigate the Pollock, Alix knows she’s about to have her hands full.
In her third mystery, Alix London must see through mirages in the desert to uncover the knotted history of the painting - and save herself in the process.

Alix London Trilogy
Too much repetition and detail
It was a good plot line
Remove a lot of the double up of information and remove a lot of the 'lecturing' information.
Alix was good. Kate Rudd read the book really well. A less competent and professional reader would have meant I wouldn't have continued with the story when I was getting so frustrated with repeated info.
Definitely not - it was a long book.
I didn't realise when I was listening to it that there were two authors writing it which probably explains the number of times that the same information was given to the reader - it was really annoying, and because it was audio, I couldn't skip the text. Also, there was far too much information given that detracted from the really quite good plot. If I wanted to find out lots about art restoration I would have read a book about it. This book is a semi-thriller and it felt really confused many times during the listen - was I listening to fiction or to a non-fiction book. The authors need to consult and to then have one outsider read it all and to mark where the info is repeated.
