Tokyo Heist – Review

Standard

Title: Tokyo Heist

Author: Diana Renn

Violet’s lame summer has just taken a quick turn for the better. Her artist father has been commissioned to create a mural for a big company in Japan, and she gets to go along for the ride. Goodbye, Seattle; hello, Tokyo!

The same clients who hired her dad were recently robbed of some Van Gogh sketches, and rumor has it that the thieves were after an even bigger score – an actual Van Gogh painting.  Violet’s new plan for the summer is to explore Tokyo, work on the manga story she’s started writing and drawing, and maybe do a little searching for the mysterious painting on her own.

Fans of manga and all things Japanese will enjoy this, and so will mystery lovers, too. There’s even a teeny bit of romance mixed in, although the mystery is definitely the main attraction here.
