by B. A. Shapiro




Overview -
"A clever and complex tale of art fraud, theft, scandal, murder, and revenge." --Publishers Weekly In this surprising, noirish page-turner, B. A. Shapiro once again takes readers into the world of art, glamour, and mystery. Accused of helping her fianc steal her family's fortune and her father's art collection, Paulien Mertens has fled to France. To protect herself from the law and the wrath of those who lost everything, she has created a new identity.

From there, she sets out to recover her father's art collection, prove her innocence, and exact revenge on her ex-fianc . B. A. Shapiro has made the historical art thriller her own, and once again she gives us an unforgettable tale about what we see--and what we refuse to see.
