Forger of Light - A Review


FORGER OF LIGHT by Nupur Tustin
The Second Celine Skye Mystery 

While she's learned more about The Lady and her own psychic abilities Celine still grapples with her gift. Coping with the loss of her employers and realizing their involvement in the infamous Gardner Museum Heist, Celine is willing to help the FBI find more of the missing treasures. A break in at the wine bar leads her back to Massachusetts where she'll hunt down the missing artwork. With some help, including the frustratingly enigmatic clues of a ghost, Celine will try to find more answers to this unsolved crime. 

Unsolved mysteries are fascinating to me and I love how the FORGER OF LIGHT continues to unravel true crime mysteries like Gardner Museum Heist, albeit in a fictional format. I like how more threads are coming together in the second Celine Skye mystery. Celine has been alone for so long, but now has a cadre of friends who care about her and are there to help.  

I like how the book changes perspective from seeing things from Celine's view to that of FBI Agent Blake Markham. I also like that in addition to Celine's visions, she has the more direct contact with the murdered sculptor. It turns out our psychic is a medium! As with most conversations from the other side, the information is given in riddles and Celine is forces to decipher the clues to find the truth...but how many bodies will fall before she does?

FORGER OF LIGHT is part traditional mystery, part thriller, and all engrossing drama encompassing a true crime. I loved the gritty realism, the otherwordly assistance, and great story found here and can't wait to uncover more secrets of the Gardner.
