Booklist - 12/15/2020 Hanging out at his father’s workplace, the National Portrait Gallery, 12-year-old Art notices a suspicious anomaly: every afternoon at exactly the same time, a woman takes exactly the same number of steps along the same path through the Great Hall. After Camille, his friend and sleuthing partner, joins him and observes the woman, he convinces her that the thieves who masterminded the notorious art heist at Boston’s Gardner Museum 30 years earlier are about to strike again, probably during the upcoming gala. When Art and Camille's initial investigation leads to embarrassment and reprimands, they back off, but a revelation at the gala sends them into action once more. Readers intrigued by the famous paintings mentioned can access them online by scanning QR codes within the book. Set in Washington, D.C., this fast-paced narrative features two likable, capable protagonists, a twisting plotline, and plenty of suspense. Kids who enjoyed The Van Gogh Deception (2017) will want to follow Art and Camille’s latest adventure, and this sequel works equally well as a stand-alone. An appealing choice for mystery fans. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
