The devoted Holy Father, Richard Mikutavic comes face to face with his passion for antique collectables when local

DISCOVER WHO WAS THE ACTUAL CRIMINAL ALL ALONG

 

 

My review:

 

This book is a true story recalling the events of the tragic fate that father 
Ričardas Mikutavičius welcomed. he was killed and many of his paintings were
stolen, some are till missing to this day.

I liked the light approach of the story at the beginning, it had such a light atmosphere that you feel like you're reading something 100% out of fiction

The characters had a very realistic tone which i appreciated, because personally
i don't enjoy the over dramatic effects.

Before the robbery the events were slow and calm but after it things picked 
up very quickly 

It was fun seeing the investigation unfold and seeing how the police
officers dealt with the evidence, but i found the criminal's behavior more interesting, 
seeing how they lie and twist the true events to serve their benefits.

"This was a silly mistake.now Beleck knew,he was a person of interest
in father richard's case. and he would do anything to get his ass cleared,
anything
 "


I always loved Karolina's writing because of it's simplicity
and it always goes straight to the point 
which makes reading her stories a quick process and never boring.

I would recommend this for people who are interested in anthropological criminology, because the story isn't very heavy yet still interesting.
