I first heard of this series at a book signing, where Ms Fewing was attending (very lovely person to meet I may add) and as I love Art, and suspense books this series was the one I wished to read. I was lucky that a few months later there was a promotion for the next book in the series - The Prize. So I am reviewing this book in advance for that release.
I enjoyed this book, the intrigue, suspense and also the romance. Our main character Zara first love is Art, the history, the uniqueness of each artist, and the way each painting is seen by the individual. I really got how she viewed art so it was easy to get into the book and follow Zara as she entered the exclusive job at one of London’s top art investigation firms,

Who is Icon?
Well I know now, you will just have to read the book to find you yourself.
