When art, money and power collide…
A Mafia boss addicted to beautiful art. A Catholic priest who knows too much. A modern-day Jay Gatsby.
And a woman on the run.
Disgraced London detective Stephen Connor is given an ultimatum: take a transfer to Rome or kiss his career goodbye.
With his love life in tatters and his confidence at an all-time low, can Stephen find the world’s most valuable painting before it disappears forever?
Nighthawks by Lambert Nagle 8s a fast-paced, well written thriller. I really enjoyed the writing. I feel like I connected to this book from page one and was intrigued all the way to the end.
This is action-packed and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I love books that are high action. It makes for an entertaining read.
There is a rather large cast of characters, which all interconnect. It took me a little bit to remember them all, but they were all necessary and well crafted.
I enjoyed Nighthawks, and think it is a good read. I recommend giving it a shot!
