Adrian Sellars is a corrupt Manhattan art dealer who makes his living selling forgeries to a wealthy Japanese businessmen. That is, until the gifted artist he employs is viciously murdered in his SoHo studio and the just-finished painting Adrian commissioned, a Monet water lilies fake, is destroyed. When Adrian's Japanese clients insist on getting another painting, and punctuate their resolve by murdering his business partner, Adrian takes to the Manhattan streets in a frantic race to save his life.
With the help of Devon Berenson, his compassionate and intelligent colleague, Adrian wages a battle against a personal demon -- his addiction to heroin -- and combs the underside of the art world to find a way out. Amid the terrors of withdrawal Adrian and Devon find themselves falling in love, but the cold hand of the Japanese mob turns up around every corner.
From a multimillion-dollar brownstone on the Upper East Side to a auction of priceless objects on the floor of Christie's to a menacing midtown back alley, Thief of Light combines a complex and thrilling plot with one of the fastest and most heart-pounding conclusions in recent fiction.
