False Impression is a mystery novel written by Jeffrey Archer. It uses the 9/11 tragedy to catch the reader’s interest, but it is basically about conspiracies in the art world – or, if you require it in simpler terms, it’s a murder mystery.
False Impression concerns an international journey through some countries and continents, including New York, London, Tokyo, and Bucharest, and covers historical information about the New York September 11 attacks, which the protagonist, Anna Petrescu, escapes after being fired by the corrupt banker Bryce Fenston. From this point on, the novel tells the tale of Anna attempting to help a British aristocrat, Arabella Wentworth to recover her family's fortune by selling a historical painting by Vincent van Gogh, which Bryce Fenston is intent on acquiring. She is followed carefully by Olga Krantz, a greedy on service to Fenston, and by Jack Delaney, an FBI agent who is investigating Fenston and attempting to explore if Anna is still working for Fenston. Anna triumph in throwing both off her trail and make arrangements to sell the painting to a Japanese steel magnate. In the end, Krantz is shot, for the second time in some days, and later arrested and sent to the Belmarsh prison. The painting is fortunately sold to the steel magnate, Anna accepts a job work as CEO of his foundation, Jack Delaney gathers enough evidence to capture Fenston, and Anna and Jack start a romantic relationship.
This was a pleasant thriller, taking us on a journey across Europe, and will be delightful for anyone interested in Van Gough or painters. Jeffrey Archer does understand how to tell a good story and the stress was kept up from beginning to end.
