Synopsis
The art world is fertile ground for mystery thrillers: there's so much to steal or fake, and such high prices are involved. So Oliver Banks is mining a rich vein with this first novel in an intended series featuring an art-historian detective, Amos Hatcher. And he begins at the very top of the scale, with a long-lost Rembrandt. Elton Ross, the over-ambitious director of the Boston Museum, is in deep trouble. He has committed three quarters of a million of the Museum's money for the purchase of a rare Greek vase which now turns out to be stolen property. So when a smalltime dealer offers him a seemingly minor 17th century painting, and he recognises it as the lost Rembrandt, he sees his chance to save his reputation. But for his plan to succeed, he must acquire possession of the painting in total secrecy. Thus, three murders follow. Hatcher investigates, and what a fascinating investigation it is, for he proceeds gradually to the solution by using entirely art-historical techniques.
