What would be the murderer’s motive? Will Anna be able to fulfill her promise to Arabella?



Many mysteries waits to unfold in this story and you cannot miss it. Though the culprit of murdering Lady Victoria was clear from the beginning of the story, the way Anna tries to return the painting of Van Gogh while two different people follow her with two different motives would be interesting. The story would show you the importance of being loyal either it’s a long term friendship or a short one. Anna’s loyalty towards Lady Victoria even after her death in the story would be highly respectable. The brave and intelligent aura of Anna while she plots to reach the painting of Van Gogh to the desired place and her hard work for it would be thrilling to read.


The mystery in the story was different as the characters did not hold them. Every motive of them were clear. The whole mystery and the thrill surrounded the plot in this book. Overall the characters were well planned, words, rich and fine and the plot was perfectly written. The book was not disappointing at all and the book deserves to be read.


Rating: 4 out of 5.
