About the Book:
Burning houses. Daring robbers. Motorway chases. Exploding boats. Flying daggers. Brutal policemen. Ruthless pirates. Beautiful women. Deadly bullets. Racing hearts. International Criminals. Narrow escapes. Tricks, stings and electrocutions. And a priceless painting by one of art’s world’s most notorious masters.
Welcome to the adventures of Vincent Ward, where getting through each day alive just isn’t enough.
 My Take:
Nonstop action with a touch of artistry?  This was a good first start for a first book of an action packed series, and great for the middle grade child who has a flair for the dramatic!  I really liked the fact that some actual history was included that we don't often get besides the Magic Tree House Series.  I really don't know much about art history so I really enjoyed learning more about Caravaggio, it wasn't in your face history, so I think most kids will read it as part of the story and not as an actual history lesson.  There is some violence, thus the PG rating.  I found it very entertaining and I'm sure it will soon find it's place among other popular middle grade literature!

Young and old will find excitement in this novel, you can pick it up from Amazon for only $.99 right now!
