Description from dust jacket
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 friendship – 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.
