Professional reviews

"Most listeners will love this latest Scott Finn adventure because it creates an imagined version of one of the biggest, yet unsolved, art heists in history--the half-billion-dollar theft at the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston in 1990. Others are going to find the plot mercilessly slow, a weakness that isn't helped much by George Guidall's methodical narration. Finn, a lawyer who is a reformed member of the Boston underworld, is called upon to defend an old friend who's involved in a minor burglary. He is drawn into the 1990 art theft case when it appears his client may have been one of the thieves. Meanwhile, some of Boston's Irish gangsters begin turning up dead. Could someone be exacting revenge on this group? There are some informative glimpses of Boston's poor neighborhoods, but they don't offset the author's meandering into several subplots. On a positive note, Guidall has his Irish brogue down pat. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
