Trudi Coffey only realizes that she hasn’t seen Samuel Hill in weeks when the FBI shows up asking questions about him. After a strange encounter with an armed man demanding her help and an attack by a member of the Boston mob looking for someone named Dream, Trudi manages to find Samuel–or rather, he finds her. He’s made some pretty powerful enemies, but right now his full attention is on protecting Dream from the mob. Because Dream has something they want–the map to the location of artwork stolen from the Gardener Museum during the infamous 1990 heist.
With danger closing in from all sides, Trudi and Samuel will have to call on all of their allies to keep Dream safe and discover the identity of the people who have been hunting down Samuel. The real questions are whom can they trust? And who will make it out of this thing alive?
Dream within a Dream by Mike Nappa is a great conspiracy thriller. It deals with an art heist from a long time ago that was lost. However, there is a map to the art goods only a mob is after Dream for it. Deadly, suspenseful, and intriguing this novel kept me hooked. From the woman who is kidnapped to her ex, Samuel, this book was interesting.
Samuel isn’t a guy I would like to have as a friend yet in this book, something kept this woman liking him. Then, there’s Dream. Dream is the illusive man that everybody wants. Dream has something worth a lot and they wont stop until they get their hands on it.
I enjoyed the finding and rescuing art for the world to see. Keeping it out of the bad guys hands, was fun but deadly. Everything has consequences. Dream is a fascinating character. A glimpse of him as a man is seen and yet there is still so much not known.
The ending was epic. I cannot say more without giving it away. Suspense with an intense atmosphere was throughout this book. From one scene to another, I could not predict what would come next.
As a reader, I love when writers create a book that I can get lost within and still not know how it will end. Mike Nappa wrote a well-crafted story. I am excited to see what he come sup with next time.
