I downloaded this book knowing nothing about either book or author. I have just finished it, having been unable to put it down. The story is about Will, a painter who was (wrongly) jailed for forging Old Masters, meeting up with a beautiful arts expert for an insurance company. Together they uncover a very unlikely web of forgery and violence. Will had learned about the skills involved in deliberate forgery while in prison from a likeable old criminal forger who was nothing like Maestro Tancredi in What's Bred in the Bone by Robertson Davies, or even Francis Cornish, but his faking methods are the same. The violence and sheer evil of some of the characters make the story a little hard to believe, but at the same time "unputdownable". An enjoyable pageturner.
