Leopold Blake, his bodyguard Jerome, and NYPD detective Mary Jordan are united in Paris, France for an interesting mystery/ thriller. Leopold has been hired by art director at the "Louve", Jean Dubois to critique the security for the valuable art in the "Louve". Leopold finds a problem right away. It seems one famous paintings is actually a fake. Meanwhile, hired hit man Dieter Reiniger has murdered by long range rifle, 5 people, and a police officer in front of Notre Dame. One of Reinger's victims is Jean Dubois. The Paris police immediately suspect Leopold of the shooting because of his stunt with the fake art canvas, and his "fingerprints" are found on the roof where the shooter was camped. Then unfortunately for NYPD detective Mary Jordan who thinks she's getting a nice peaceful vacation to spend time with Leopold, all hell breaks loose. Paris police are then looking for the fugitives Leopold, Mary, and Jerome. Leoplold along with a worker from the "Louve" are forced to run around Paris looking for truth. Captain Rousseau, "The Wolf" dogs the team at their every step. Things seem to point back to Blake industries for the key to the mystery. I was happy the plot along with the story line moves at a very nice pace. Book is pretty packed with action and adventure. Superb dialog helps make the characters in the book really come alive. It's easy to root for the good guys and against the bad guys. Twists and turns close to the end were done pretty well. I did enjoy reading "Wanted" ,by Nick Stephenson very much. His Leopold Blake series is fun to read. Series has some good action to go along with some great characters. I'd recommend this book, and the series itself very highly. I gave the book 5 stars out of a possible 5 stars very easily. I can't wait to jump into the next Leopold Blake adventure from Nick Stephenson. Do yourself a favor and check this series out. It's very easy to read and a lot of fun as well.
