Product description


“Reviewing can make you hate books – the grim spectre of the copy deadline means that other tasks (cleaning the fridge is popular) can seem attractive compared with just getting on reading the book. Sleuth was different. I could not wait to get back to it” Sunday Telegraph

‘timely … exciting’ Country Life

‘a fast-paced and fascinating account of the race to uncover ‘lost’ treasures’ Independent on Sunday

‘this absorbing and fast-paced narrative … an extremely enjoyable read’ British Art Journal

‘This is no dry treatise and Mould is a first-class scene setter … There is an immediacy to much of the writing, which draws the reader in … the sort of book that may well do more to attract future talent to the world of art dealing than any number of university art history courses’ Antiques Trade Gazette

From the Publisher

Publication of the paperback to coincide with a new primetime BBC TV series called Fake or Fortune fronted by Philip Mould and Fiona Bruce all about art sleuthing. Their quest takes them to cities from New York to Cairo to unpick the clues behind stolen and contested works of art. They investigate a valuable watercolour found next to a dump, a possible Rembrandt and a 17th-century Dutch oil that could be a 20th-century fake.
