    When an aristocratic old lady is brutally murdered in her English country home on the night before September 11, 2001, it will take all the resources of the FBI and Interpol to work out the connection between her death and a priceless Van Gogh, which is stolen that night.

    "Accents by the narrator"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful book. It has intrigue, suspense, and very likable characters. It is classic Archer writing. The one thing that I found most annoying, past the point of distraction, was the narrators feeble attempts at accents. His narration in general was well done, but when he slipped into what he perceived to be a Middle Eastern accent, I was distracted from the story-line by the lameness. All in all, a good listen if you are able to get past the aforementioned.

    Los Angeles is gripped by the exploding celebrity of Allison Murietta, her real identity unknown, a modern-day Jesse James with the compulsion to steal beautiful things, the vanity to invite the media along, and the conscience to donate much of her bounty to charity. Nobody ever gets hurt - until a job ends with ten gangsters lying dead and a half-million dollars worth of glittering diamonds missing.

    "Save your money and/or credit"
    Overall

    I was unable to get past the first forty minutes or so of this book due to my strong aversion to this narrator. I was unable to keep going even though I gave it two attempts. It seemed to me as if the narrator should have been a male as the "voice" I heard from the sections of the book I was able to get through was not a feminine one. Just my opinion and not meant to be an attack on this person.
