As the investigation gets underway it becomes apparent that her killing is linked to a priceless Van Gogh painting that she was on the verge of selling. As the mystery unfolds we are taken from New york to London to Bucharest and on to Tokyo until everything becomes clear in a sleepy English village.

Synopsis

False Impression by Jeffrey Archer

When an aristocratic old lady is brutally murdered in her country home the night before 9/11, it takes all the resources of the FBI and Interpol to work out the connection between her and the possible motive for her death - a priceless Van Gogh painting. But in the end, it's a young woman in the North Tower when the first plane crashed into the building that has the courage and determination to take on both sides of the law and avenge the old lady's death. Anna Petrescu is missing, presumed dead, after 9/11 and she uses her new status to escape from America, only to be pursued across the world from Toronto to London, to Hong Kong, Tokyo and Bucharest, but it is only when she returns to New York that the mystery unfolds. "False Impression" is a classic Jeffrey Archer novel of twists and turns and heart-stopping intrigue...Why are so many people willing to risk their own lives and others' to own the Van Gogh Self Portrait with bandaged ear?
