I read the exciting thriller-suspense novel, Wanted by Nick Stephenson while traveling. The action is fast-paced. As the criminologist Leopold Blake discovers a fake painting in the Louvre, there is a sniper killing five people in Paris’ Notre Dame square. After the killing, the assassin plants Leopold Blake’s fingerprints to implicate him in the murders. Leopold tries to stay one step ahead of the police while finding out why someone is framing him for the murders. He is assisted by his friend Mary Jordan, an NYPD sergeant who came to Paris to vacation with him, by his bodyguards, and by Sofie Bardot, the Louvre’s art restorer. Together they run around Paris trying to avoid the police and resolve the whodunit. Wanted is a fun read with a lot of action as the bodies pile up; there is even a touch of romance.
The revelation at the end of the book surprised me and made me want to get the next book in the series.
