Description artforger
(#1 Indie Next Pick) On March 18, 1990, thirteen works of art—worth $500 million today—were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, and Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is about to discover that there's more to this crime than meets the eye. Claire makes her living reproducing famous works of art for an online retailer, and in a Faustian bargain she agrees to forge a painting in exchange for a one-woman show at Aiden Markel's renowned gallery. But when the Degas masterpiece arrives at her studio, Claire begins to suspect that this painting—one which had hung in the Gardner for over a hundred years—is itself a forgery.

"Classy and pleasurably suspenseful ... an entrancingly visual, historically rich, deliciously witty, sensuous, and smart tale of authenticity versus fakery."—Booklist
