Reeling from a catalogue of disasters, flaky sleuth Amy travels to Prague to help an old man recover a Picasso painting last seen in 1939. It seems like a mundane assignment, but the stakes are far higher than Amy imagines. Competing forces have vested interests, and are prepared to kill to meet their goals.

Having not read any of the previous books I did not know what to expect and I was certainly not disappointed. Well written, with fascinating characters it kept you guessing to the very end. Thanks to TBC for giving me the opportunity to read this book

This was my first encounter with Crazy Amy but it would seem that she earned her title from the previous two books in the series. Although this book carried on from some time earlier, it still read well as a standalone book. This was a fast paced mystery with strong characters. Crazy Amy has had a rough time recently and is shouldering guilt from a recent loss. I liked Amy. The plot ran well, but did need some extra concentration especially as the mystery was being solved. It was a very cleverly ...more

I haven't read any of the other Crazy Amy books but that didn't stop me enjoying this one. I loved Amy even though she seemed to have all sorts of issues she was a little vulnerable as well. When she sets off to recover a Picasso painting with George Smithies who she feels she owes something to so she starts the assignment without much hope. It seems there are other parties wanting the same painting and even though George seems to have a claim to it they will not give up easily. She gets herself ...more

The third book of the Crazy Amy series takes us on a wild and crazy trip to Prague. Amy pairs up with an unlikely companion, George Smithies father of her former arch-nemesis Ed, to help him find a Picasso painting lost by his family in World War II. Of course, things are never as straight forward as they first appear for socially clueless Amy, and she gets caught up in far more than she bargained for in her search for the painting.

I loved Restitution just as much as Concealment and Exposure and

One of the year’s best thrillers. Rose Edmunds proves that her Crazy Amy series is only getting better with each installment.

Has a long-lost Picasso really resurfaced in Prague? That’s the hope of 84-year-old London resident George Smithies, whose father, a gallery owner, was allegedly tortured and killed by the Nazis in 1939. Having avoided his homeland since his escape to England as a boy, a newspaper photograph of the painting, found in a Czech apartment, has compelled him to consider it.

An exceptional third book in the Crazy Amy series, Restitution takes Amy to Prague in search of artwork looted during the second world war. It would be fair to assume this would be dry, analytical work, but unfortunately for Amy and her friends, the violence and intrigue are not restricted to the past.
The writing is flawless and the characters, both old and new, are engaging, fascinating and terrifying by turn, the pace is perfectly judged and the plot hangs together brilliantly. But it's the

In this third book in the Crazy Amy series, Amy travels to Prague to help 84 year old George Smithies recover a Picasso painting last seen in 1939, and help him find his way through the maze of Czech art restitution law. The situation is a complex one, as there is mystery surrounding family ties, and right of ownership is not straightforward. Amy and George meet up with Beresford, an art historian to whom Amy takes an immediate dislike, and her old 'frenemy', Mel. It soon transpires that Amy and ...more

Book Review

I was fortunate to be given a copy of this book by the author and through The Book Club on Facebook in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.

After leaving her job as a top city, high earning accountant, Amy fancies herself as a private eye, a super sleuth, and she has taken a job that will immerse her in history across Europe. Hired by 84-year-old George Smithies, she finds herself tracking down art work that was confiscated by Nazi

It is exhilarating to meet “Crazy Amy” once more, trying to pick up her life again by using her financial and legal expertise to help 83-year-old George stake his claim to a valuable Picasso painting, recently rediscovered. Believing that it belonged to his Art collector father before he was murdered in 1939, George travels to Prague accompanied by Amy, not realising that there are others with a similar mission who will stop at nothing to get hold of the picture.

Still in shock from a recent

Restitution is the third book in the Crazy Amy series I read it as a stand alone. This book sees Amy agree to help 84 year old George Smithies the father of her evil boss Ed Smithies. George lays claim to a valuable portrait by Picasso of his one-time lover Fernande Olivier.
His father Josef was an art collector and owned a gallery. One night in June 1939, the Gestapo rounded up Dušek and his business partner, stripping the gallery and their homes of offending artworks. They then allegedly

Another great Crazy Amy book, this one takes Amy to Prague, searching for a Picasso painting, last seen in 1939. Amy isn't the only one looking for the painting and they will stop at nothing to find it.

I loved Rose Edmunds flawless writing, it flows beautifully with just the right length chapters. The characters are strongly presented and very engaging. I loved Amy and Little Amy who shows up throughout the book.

Overall a brilliant book and highly recommended, 5 full stars.

In this third (stand-alone) book in the ‘Crazy Amy’ financial thriller series, Amy travels to Prague to help an old man recover a Picasso painting, last seen in 1939 and coveted by several collectors. Someone is trying to kill her, but who? And where is the painting? A cleverly plotted story, with unexpected twists and reversals and a heroine as troubled, unstable and endearing as ever, not least to a Bohemian prince, who, Amy hopes, isn’t the villain... A fun read.
