Everyone in town is lining up to see Titian?s masterpiece, The Triumph of Bacchus, on loan for a limited time to London?s Royal Academy. But while most of the art-lovers have nothing more than aesthetics on their minds, a few in the crowd have other agendas. When the painting is stolen?returnable in exchange for five million pounds? worth of uncut diamonds?at least one of those agendas becomes clear. Others, however, remain murky. Take Tom Shaughnessy?shameless cad, ladies? man, and expert forger of paintings: For whom and for what purpose is he making that exquisite copy?From the Back Cover:
The Triumph of Bacchus is one of Titian's masterworks. It has also just been stolen from the Royal Academy, and is being held for five million pounds in ransom. And, suddenly, it becomes the obsession of two people: Patricia Drew, an attractive, ambitious TV reporter tracking the story for a ground-breaking documentary, and Tom Shaugnessy, a former employee of Christie's and a forger scrambling to create a copy that will fool even the most skeptical experts. Their motives - and their unlikely, evolving relationship - are at the heart of this story of heist and double-heist, which will beguile art lovers in its fascinating detail, and leave mystery lovers in awe at its startling denouement.
