A high-speed, high-stakes thriller from Ken Follett, the grand master of international action and suspense. Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.
A fabulous "lost masterpiece" becomes the ultimate prize—for an art historian whose ambition consumes everyone around her, an angry young painter with a plan for revenge on the art establishment, and a desperate gallery owner who may have double-crossed his own life away. Behind the elegance and glamour of the art world, anything goes—theft, forgery, betrayal, and maybe even murder. . . .

Portions interesting but not up to his standards
The author admits to this being an experiment... and it seems to have missed the mark. It starts out slowly requiring tenacity to hang in. The intricacies of everyone’s attempt to outwit each other later on hold your interest somewhat until the end. The art world sequences lacked credibility, and the motivations of multiple characters were either absent or hastily constructed. From the middle on it was readable but would not make most ‘recommended reads’ list.
