Robert and Eleanor are trying to find a missing painting and know the people in custody should have more information than they let on.  To help with the problem, Eleanor must ask for help from her ex-boyfriend, James.

The seventh book in The Agency series, Burning Intensity, has lots of intense moments between Eleanor and James.  The author throws in a surprise about the Cezanne painting that had been stolen, but leaves it up in the air about what it is exactly.  The storyline is not completely resolved in this book, so the next one should be interesting. 

Eleanor and James have history, but the chemistry still zings between them.  As they resolve what happened to break them up, their relationship interferes with their investigation of the heist that has been woven throughout the series.

A few characters from previous books make an appearance, and some new ones are introduced.  Robert, Eleanor's partner, is instrumental in getting James and Eleanor back together.  Eleanor isn't happy about it, but several situations, after they first meet again, become very funny.

While I am enjoying this series, there are a few times, I would have liked a little more detail about what is going on, or why particular characters do things within the context of what is happening. Readers do need to read the series in order, and I am looking forward to the book eight.
