The Kandinsky Spy P.W. O'Reilly


Rebecca Miller is content working her demanding job at the Hirshhorn Art Museum and spending time with the enigmatic professor Julian Graves, but a brush with the past sends her on an epic journey that takes her across time and space. Catapulted into 1940's Paris with a new identity, Rebecca befriends a high-ranking Nazi party member. Their strange relationship places her in the midst of artists, writers, and politicians, at the beginning of one of the deadliest wars of our time. Sent with the goal of deciphering a complex code, she must straddle the line between 1997 and 1940, between her borrowed life and her real one. In the end, the lines between who she can trust and who she can't begin to blur as she delves deeper into 1940.

I was drawn to the interesting premise of art/code-breaking. The danger factor of the Nazis and WW2 present high stakes. I would like to have felt more immediacy in the pace of the overall story. It had a somewhat episodic feel especially during the development of the Rebecca/Julian relationship that slowed the momentum. The circumstances of the story also lend themselves to a heightened tension that could be mined further. I'll never look at a Kandinsky the same way again!

I'm curious, but haven't connected with a character yet. I am interested enough to read on to find out how the prologue connects with the present.
