The Costa Affair Lisa Fantino 4*#Review @AmalfiBlueBook @KellyALacey @lovebookstours #LoveBooksTours @igbooktours  #TheCostaAffair #TheDetectiveFlynnMysteries #BlogTour #BookReview #BookTour #Detective #suspense #mystery

Tremors rock the art world when a millionaire patron of the arts vanishes from his Riverdale mansion. The mysterious disappearance of Gianni Costa and millions in art is headline news, triggers an urgent investigation, imperils a multi-million-dollar auction, and threatens to destabilize a huge overseas pipeline of profit.

In “The Costa Affair,” Lisa Fantino’s long-awaited follow-up to her ‘Det. Maggie Flynn’ mystery series, Maggie is plunged into a world of unimaginable wealth where priceless art changes hands with the fall of a gavel.

Beneath the veneer of elegance though is a transatlantic criminal underworld where deals are brokered in blood, and art is used to evade taxes and launder drug money. Is Costa connected? Nosy NYPD detectives who get too close are in grave peril.

My Thoughts…

When a renowned art patron disappears, detective Maggie Flynn and her partner investigate the case. I liked that Maggie is an intelligent and intuitive investigator, and the dynamic between the two police detectives added authenticity and depth to the story.

A well-researched story whose glimpse of the art world is fascinating. The plot has a good pace and plenty of twists and makes an engaging and informative read.
