This a page turner throughout: a fascinating, imperiled protagonist, plenty of twists, and good pacing. The background on art forgery, Boston, and museum politics is enlightening and never extraneous to the character's perspective. As an oil painter, I also appreciated the artistic vision of the characters, as well as the personal history of famous painters which wove throughout the story.

Not a towering literary feat, but a good strong story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Wonderful writing about impressionist art and forgery techniques. Art lovers will particularly like this book, but even if you don't think of yourself as an art love you might want to try this---it could well turn you into a fan of the impressionists. Highly recommended.

The author came up with a highly entertaining and captivating fiction based on the biggest unresolved art heist in history.
The voice and style of a narrator is always controversial and a big problem for audiobooks. It's so personal. You can't satisfy everyone.
I liked it a lot.
Interesting tale, well told. I am not an artist but I enjoyed the art references.
