Friends this is my review of the book Mosaic by Gayle Lynds, which I read recently. This is certainly a fast action page turner that progresses along at a fantastic pace.
The story takes place in the last few days before the American Presidential Election. The seemingly underdogs, a very wealthy political family endeavor to turn events around so that they will win.
Sadly to get to this point it does not matter who is in the way, they are to be got rid of, even if they are family. The body count quite quickly mounts up, but all starts top go wrong when Julia Austrian a world class concert pianist witnesses her mother's brutal murder. To make matters worse Julia had been blind for the last 10 years before that, but just as her sight mysteriously vanished so it reappeared, only to vanish again at the trauma of seeing her mother die.
The other star of the story is a classical music fan, whose number one hero is Julia, and he just happens to work for the CIA. Together they have to solve the mystery of who killer Julia's mother and unwittingly plunge into a violent whirlwind of deceit, lust and greed. This leads back in time to Nazi war-time treasure.
It is a good story, with a nice couple of unexpected twists at the end.
