LoveReading View on False Impression

False Impression is a pacy thriller with a winding plot centred around the murder of an elderly lady the day before the bombing of the twin towers.  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.  If you're a fan of Jeffery Archer, you certainly won't be disappointed. This title is also available as an Audio book, read by Anton Lesser as either a CD or a cassette.

False Impression Synopsis

Jeffrey Archer, one of the greatest popular novelists of our generation, delivers a truly page-turning thriller.


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. It’s a young woman in the North Tower when the first plane crashed into the building who 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.


Why are so many people willing to risk their own lives and others' to own the Van Gogh Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear?
