Welcome to our last entry for the Booksparks Summer Reading Program!
Tyler slides into a simple life of bartending in New York City, living his life day to day. And then at
the hottest art opening of the season he meets Kommate Imasu, a Japanese billionaire and famed
art collector, who seems to know more about Tyler than his own mother does. With serious threats
against his family and friends, Tyler has to decide how much risk he’ll take to protect them. He
quickly learns that gambling against a billionaire is never a good idea. Tyler plunges headfirst into a
world of art forgers, hit-men, Yakuza, a femme fatal named Chanel No. 5, and the legendary curse
of Van Gogh, in order to pull off the greatest art heist in history.
Can an art thief, be as everyday as you and me?
Hoppe answers that question with this new book! Tyler is a character that feel an immediate connection to, and that you want to see what happens to! Because you know like the infamous cartoon character, he has a bit of that grey cloud over his head, and trouble will always be his bane. You may find it VERY hard to put down this book- I know I did, reading long after I was supposed to be asleep! I found myself wanting it to be made into a movie, and putting actors in as the characters in my head as I was reading- always a sign of a great book. You'll love the mystery, intrigue and romance, and fun! Definitely pick this one up for your last Summer read, or for Fall!
