Jennifer S. Alderson – Marked for Revenge

Imagine, fifteen Dutch museums robbed of very specific pieces of modern art. A smart Balkan gang that exploits a loophole in our local legislation that enables a pater familias opening a museum in the future. Identifying the mysterious Robber Hood and returning the paintings involves local police, Vincent, a private investigator, and Zelda. a young curator of the Cobra Museum, and leads the reader in a twisting roller-coaster through the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Venice, and Turkey.

The adventurous narrative contains a lot of local flavors, a bit over the top for me as Dutch reader, that can easily pin point mistakes in names and grammar. Forgery, state of the art security measures, blogs, drugs dealers, and a dose of humor are thrown in this amazing whirlwind. Marked for Revenge is the third book in the Zelda Richardson Mystery Series. The novels in this series can be read in any order. After completing this instance, you’re treated with leading chapters of the two other titles in the series.

About the author

Jennifer S. Alnderson is a longtime American expat currently living in Amsterdam. After traveling extensively around Asia, Oceania, and Central America, she moved to Darwin, Australia, before finally settling in the Netherlands. When not writing, she can be found in a museum, biking around Amsterdam, or enjoying a coffee along the canal while planning her next research trip.

Her love of travel, art, and culture inspires my award-winning, internationally oriented mystery series—the Zelda Richardson Mystery Series—and standalone stories.
