A sinister and provocative thriller from crime writing's freshest new voice. Ethan Muller is struggling to establish his reputation as a dealer in the cut-throat world of contemporary art, when he stumbles onto a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: in a decaying New York slum, an elderly tenant named Victor Cracke has disappeared, leaving behind a staggeringly large trove of original artwork. Cracke came and went in solitude for nearly forty years, his genius hidden and unacknowledged, but all that is about to change. Strictly speaking, the art doesn't belong to Ethan, but he sells it anyway, mounting a wildly successful show. Buyers clamor. Critics sing. Museums are interested, and Ethan's photo looks great in The New York times. Then things go to hell.

At the beginning, there is a certain absence of clarity in the chronology. It may seem there is too much attention paid to the names of artists, arts, paintings. But as a whole - a great book, cleverly written with deep psychological aspect.

Loved this book, and absolutely love this author. His writing is so eloquent; he obviously doesn't try to dumn-down for the masses like so many others.
