From Publishers Weekly
Shortly after ex-spy Lang Reilly's sister dies in an explosion in her Paris domestic, a replica of a portray via the 17th-century artist Poussin, which his sister obtained the day sooner than she died and together with a wierd Latin inscription, disappears from Lang's domestic. With police and killers on his path, Lang embarks on a trip to Italy to discover the painting's secrets and techniques in addition to its connection to his sister, enlisting assistance from a former co-worker, the German killing-machine Gurt Fuchs. just a little dry excerpts from a medieval account of the Knights of the Temple punctuate the motion, hinting that the secret is extra advanced than Lang can think. The foreign atmosphere and fast moving motion grip, and luckily, Loomis's convincing protagonist possesses the intelligence and emotional intensity to hold the reader via a few not going situations (e.g., in an airport rest room stall, Lang constructs a faux gun out of candy). notwithstanding the momentum occasionally lags, every one scene is bright adequate to maintain the reader engaged. a few may possibly locate the book's mystery societies and paintings background topics a trifle unoriginal, yet others trying to repeat The Da Vinci Code adventure might be chuffed.
