Review: False Impression | Jeffrey Archer

This is the first book by Jeffrey Archer I’ve read and I’m happy to report that I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed that the main character was an art expert who used to work for Sotheby’s and there are plenty of references to artists and artworks throughout the book. If you didn’t know your art or Impressionists then I could understand why some readers could feel like Archer is name dropping, but I really enjoyed this angle on the art world.


The incorporation of the events of September 11 were also very interesting and I enjoyed how Archer used this as part of the story but it didn’t dominate the plot. The unfolding of events from the point of view of the main character were captivating and I think he achieved a perfect balance here.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys action/crime novels and I’d certainly keep my eye open for another book by Jeffrey Archer in the future.

My rating = ****

That’s my four bucks!
