London: At the National Gallery of Modern Art, the museum's newest acquisition is stolen just hours after it was purchased for 6.3 million pounds.
Three apparently unrelated art thefts in three separate cities have more in common than anyone imagines. As a renowned art investigator, a police inspector, and a Scotland Yard inspector take up their separate investigations, a trail of bizarre clues and intellectual puzzles reveals forgeries, over-paintings, and double-crosses in an ever-deepening conspiracy.

What a listen!
Where does The Art Thief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have to rank this high on my list of great audiobooks. The reading was superb and the story excellent.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
This story is full of twists and turns, crosses, double crosses and triple crosses. I never knew what to expect from one moment to the next.
What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The reader really brings out the humor in the book. I started with the print version, and it was only after I switched to the audio after chapter 3 that I realized how much I had been missing.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
What can you believe?
Any additional comments?
I frequently have trouble following audiobooks. This one was easy and renewed my interest in them.

lots of fun, and fun characters
While this book is not high art by any stretch, I enjoyed it from cover to cover. There were parts that were a bit weak or pedantic, but for the most part, it was quite enjoyable. I laughed quite a few times and there are wonderful turns-of-phrase throughout. The characters are characters in more than one sense of the word.
