Ambitious art historian Bill Maguire searches Paris for a subject for his doctoral thesis and follows up faint clues about once famous abstract painter Alexander Golden. He fi nds himself in Carmel listening to the death-bed confessions of Joe Rembrandt, an art forger on an industrial scale, and meets beautiful Anna Glover whose life seems somehow connected with the dying man. But when Anna's lawyer boss completely debunks Rembrandt's story, he decides it's time to get out and write his thesis. Unable, however, to get out of his mind Joe's assertion that he found where Golden disappeared to with his mistress and a cache of his never-beforeseen canvases that could be worth millions, Bill searches around Arles for Golden's farmhouse hideaway that probably never existed outside Rembrandt's imagination. He fi nds Anna there before him and hears yet another version of Joe's story. Together, they make the discovery that adds love, greed, insanity, academic dishonesty and very likely murder into the mix before leading to a completely unforeseen outcome.

About the Author:

Michael Johnston is the associate professor of political science at Colgate University. He received his doctorate in political science from Yale University. He is the author of "Political Corruption and Public Policy in America" and co-editor of "Fraud, Waste, and Abuse in Government". He is also currently co-editor of the journal "Corruption and Reform".

Review:

"Johnston's handling of art and duplicity makes for a compelling composition - his colour and originality is tempered with enough sinister dark, and authoritative realism, to entrap and engage the reader throughout." Philip Mould OBE, Director of Philip Mould & Company, Specialist Dealer in British Art and Old Masters; and co-presenter of BBC TV's Fake or Fortune? "A remarkable insight into the mind of an art forger" John Myatt, Genuine Fakes"
