9781463520274: Christie's Unmasked: The scandal that rocked the art world

This book, which explores a startling global scandal, is based on the true life story authored by Uzbek businessman Otabek Teshabekov. The story begins with a conflict unfolding between Mr. Teshabekov and Christie's of London, the world's largest auction house, concerning the value of his antique Persian carpet. The search for the nature and true value of the carpet takes Otabek to Europe, Central Asia, America and the Middle East. During his quest for truth and justice he encounters top museum curators, elite appraisal firms, auction houses, international lawyers, mafia, the FBI... This riveting book includes interaction with government agencies, attempted murder, and a lost love. As he seeks to unveil a world-wide conspiracy and corporate greed at its highest level, Otabek finds himself thrust into the shadowy, often dangerous world of international antique trade and political intrigue. He not only finds truth, but ultimately discovers the astounding, hidden mystery surrounding his carpet, one that could conceivably affect the balance of power internationally.

About the Author:

Otek is an antiques dealer for many years. He came to America trying to sell a carpet that resulted in a worldwide chase and showed some of the price fixing and theft in the art world. Christies has sued the publisher and the writer trying to stop the book, but the lawsuit proved to be frivolous.
