Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A sprawling tapestry of deceit, honor, love, and triumph...this book will entertain you from the first page to the last.” Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“Hilarious! Delicious! This deftly plotted mystery is filled with art and French food and delightful heroines and heroes…Simon Vance uses rich accents to create a believable Gallic atmosphere as he ‘ooo-la-las!’ his way through a series of gastronomic adventures, making listeners’ mouths water at the same time that their sides ache with laughter.” AudioFile
“Charney crafts an intellectual masterpiece in this work that sweeps through three of the worlds most art-filled cities. This novel is a witty, fast-paced page-turner full of artistic symbolism and insider knowledge about legendary art thefts, forgeries, and secret engravings.” IndieBound
“Debut author Noah Charney enjoys a unique vantage point from which to spin his tale of art-world intrigue...Charney is a real-life version of his novel's hero Gabriel Coffin...A mixture of inside information on the art market and lively art history (including four actual lectures, all of them brilliantly devised) brings the novel very close to nonfiction territory.” BookPage
