I won this book on a goodreads.com giveaway. I LOVED IT!!! This book was so exciting to read that I found myself reading faster than usual just to get to the next part. If this book is made into a movie I will be first in line to see it. The book had everything from mystery, murder, suspense, lost love, rekindled love and more. I don't want to give any of it away so I won't mention anything about the actual book but I highly recommend this! Thank you so much for this fun journey through history, ...more

This was, for me, a free download from Amazon. The storyline was, in theory, quite good - a Hepplewhite desk made for George Washington that had never arrived at its destination winds up in the private collection of an Italian man whose wealth was made dishonestly and on the backs of many people, all of whom he considered expendable. After an American expert in antique artifacts, Cristina Sheppard, arrived to validate his purchase, the desk disappeared and thus the involved mystery begins.

The plot was full of twists and turns, based on the conspiracy theory of a secretive society ruling the world. Unfortunately, the enjoyment of the reading experience was marred by a lack of editing. It appears that spell check and grammar check were relied on for editing. This resulted in many wrong words: consul for counsel and console, polls for poles, your for you're, and many more. In addition to errors caused by reliance on spell check, some words were used in incorrect and confusing ways. ...more

Despised shipping tycoon, Enrico Brosconni, is a mogul with an obsession, exceptionally rare antiques. Christina Sheppard is a world renowned dealer out of Manhattan. Her photographic memory is as legendary as her ability to unlock the cleverly crafted compartments of the world’s greatest works. And famed historian, Randolph Hancock, is about to make an incredulous claim: there are secret documents hidden inside the centuries old desk. What all three have in common is a priceless antique, and th ...more

Granted, I got this under the "free" list on my kindle, but still...

This book was so much longer than it needed to be, and heavy editing hand would have done it wonders. The main characters were hard to care about, and the big plot twist in the mystery was so out of the blue that is was less of a plot "twist" and more of a "he just pulled that out of nowhere" angle that didn't make sense or match up with the story arc previously presented. Can't recommend this one.

Documents are found in a hidden compartment of a desk found in an attic in England. The book is a fun ride though Italy, England and early US history. It's not Dan Brown, but it is a fun read.

A little disappointed with the book - but it was a quick read. In my opinion it could have been a bit better - but was still a good book.
