Description

Alix London, the art restorer and FBI consultant renowned as the Art Whisperer, can spot a counterfeit masterpiece before the paint even dries. What she can't see is why an elite European art dealer would offer her big money for a little mirror that's no more than a homemade gift from her beloved uncle Tiny. Not that Alix would part with it at any price. But when the mirror is abruptly stolen from her home, she realizes that someone sees more in the looking glass than mere sentimental value.

When her uncle Tiny disappears mysteriously just after the mirror is stolen, the simple art theft becomes a personal and professional challenge Alix can't ignore. With backup from her friends in the FBI, her game-for-anything pal Chris, and an aging-but-dogged Italian police detective, she delves into the puzzling case, only to find that there is much more to this theft than meets the eye. Once the Mafia shows up on the scene, Alix's mission becomes a do-or-die race to find the one possible man with all the answers.

Alix marries the FBI agent who...

...sent her dad to prison. The trouble starts with a magazine cover photo of Alix in her apartment. The photo shows a small painting that includes a mirror. The painting is recognized a corner of a famous missing 400 year old classic. Alix's uncle Tiny gave the small painting to her 20 years ago for her 12th birthday.

The Trouble with Mirrors is not my favorite novel in the Alix London series (that honor goes to A Dangerous Talent), but it comes very close to earning 5 stars. Kate Rudd's narration does earn 5 stars.

The Alix London series novels are light and fun suspense mysteries with great characters.

Decent read and great narration..



This was an okay book. Tiny disappeared and Alix and Chris went looking for him. The theft of a painting 20 or 30 years ago came into play after a few days and Alix’s 300 pound friend, Tiny, was thought to have had a part in the theft.

Alix’s had been married only a few days and she lives in Seattle and her new husband, Ted, lives in Washington D.C. and that’s the way they were going to leave it, each taking turns flying out to see each other when time allows. She’s an art consultant and Ted is in charge of the Art Theft Department of the FBI.

Anyway, this all had to do with a mirror that Tiny gave Alix 20 years ago and her condo being broken into and it was stolen, along with some other pictures she thought was worth about $500. The mirror and Tiny’s disappearance happened at the same time.

There were some pretty boring moments in this. Times I had to skim to get past all the roads and directions they traveled. I don’t care how they get anywhere, the streets, roads, highways, trails, paths because unless I’ve been to that state or city I can’t picture it, so there’s no point in writing all that, unless it’s to add to the word count of the book.

There was no sex and very little swearing, mostly damn and hell.

As to the narration: I absolutely love Kate Rudd’s narration. Her voices and emotional reading is wonderful.

Where is Tiny?



Another adventure/mystery with Alix London and her friend Chris who is really enjoying life except for one thing. Where is Tiny? Art and intrigue with a lot of subtext comedy and friendship.

Good book but too long.

The end of this book is sooo strung out that I almost quit it . It should have the last 25 minutes truncated to about 4 minutes.
