Rating (out of 5): 2/3
Brief intro: Spanish journalist and art historian Jaime Azcárate has always been a magnet for trouble. So when the authorities call on him to help investigate a museum heist while he’s enjoying a rare vacation, he is more annoyed than surprised. Jaime brushes off the detectives’ pleas to find a missing and reportedly cursed Medusa sculpture, until an attempt on his life pulls him into the investigation.
With nowhere else to turn, Jaime reaches out to the only person in the world who can help: Paloma Blasco, the ex-girlfriend with whom he authored an article on the priceless statue. The pair must put their differences aside as they travel from Greece to Sardinia to find the Medusa—before the curse claims another victim.
Review: Not brilliant, but entretaining. Can be read as an standalone book.
