The Bosch Deception by Alex Connor
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An easy, quick read, a conspiracy thriller involving a gold chain which reputably belonged to the 15th century painter Hieronymus Bosch and apparently holds evidence of the date of his death, something the Catholic Church badly needs protecting. Why? Well … read this and see. Full of duplicity, skulduggery and improbable ‘facts’, it’s great fun, a nice escapist read for the addicted. The author obviously enjoys creating mysteries around art and giving us interesting experts to unravel things. This one is a defrocked Catholic priest, an orphan whose childhood was dominated by a bullying brother. He reports child abuse and gets thrown out for disloyalty! Interesting.

If you like Alex Connor you might also like to read books by Scott Mariani, Laurence O'Bryan and J. L. Carrell.

Reviews

'Really, really good entertainment from Alex Connor'
Books Monthly, Crime and Thriller. Books Monthly, Crime and Thriller

'So well-written that it is hard to tear yourself away from it. As a result, it is a fairly quick read and leaves you feeling just as frazzled as Nicholas. There are a few twists and turns along the way and it keeps you guessing right until the end! Superb!'
