Alexandra Stewart thought she was born to be a spy. Her eidetic memory, the adrenaline rush, and the calling to help people was in her blood. But after her latest mission in Paris and her confrontation with a terrorist, Alex begins to question her role working for The Company, a secret spy organization that exists in the basement of Brown University.
When the CIA asks for her assistance on a mission only she has the ability to complete, Alex agrees to travel to Mexico City as an exchange student at an elite art school, leaving behind her comatose brother and her handler who has risked everything to keep her safe and would do anything to be with her.
In an attempt to prove to herself where she belongs, Alex throws herself into the mission, only to discover that her training may not be enough. As her perspective changes, she begins to realize that her memory isn’t a canvas of realistic paint strokes, but an impressionistic landscape influenced by her own emotions. Scaling buildings and discovering secrets may not be as hard as finding her own heart. And the enemy she is fighting against could be the one person closest to her.

In Robin M. King’s Remembrandt and Van Gogh Gone, we are taken into the white-knuckle world of international espionage—and with her third and final installment in this series, Memory of Monet, King delivers in a big way!
Alexandra Stewart is put back into play as she is sent on a mission that seems hand-crafted just for her and her special abilities. Yet, while on location in Mexico City, her arsenal of unique trade craft, including her eidetic memory, seem not enough to accomplish the mission. Alex doubts her ability as a spy—especially after her latest mission in Paris and her confrontation with a terrorist—as she finds herself in some extremely tight spots. And if this isn’t enough, Alex is also struggling to figure out relationships in her family, as well as understanding her own heart.
Will Alex complete the mission and stay in the spy business? Will she finally see her mother for who she was? What about her father and comatose brother? And what will become of her hunky handler, who always seems to be there to keep her safe? King answers all these questions with insightful prose and page-turning suspense. Get a sturdy pillow to grip—you’re in for an exciting treat with Memory of Monet. My only complaint: it’s the last!
I always enjoy how effortlessly I become entwined with the stories that Robin writes. This final book is no exception. I found that it flowed very nicely and was surprised when I expectedly was in the last chapter.
I loved this series. It was totally entertaining throughout every book and Alex is such a solid protagonist. I feel comfortable recommending this book to anyone and often point young readers to this series. Really fun read!
I love this entire series. The characters are relatable and well developed. The story was captivating. I love Alex and the fun twists with her missions and her love life. Memory of Monet finished off the trilogy, but I still wistfully want more.
Definitely my favorite of King's books. The twists and suspense kept me reading from start to finish. I was so glad that we got to hear from all my favorite characters, including William - after that crazy ending in Van Gogh Gone, I though he was gone too. I enjoyed seeing more of Professor Golkov and Daly too.
