Because the amount of artwork by any given artist is finite, discovering that there may be an undiscovered work by a famous artist is a huge discovery in the art world. When an art student studying abroad hears that not all of Modigliani's works are available, she delightedly decides to find the one that was reputedly hidden during the War.
The many twists of the plot are difficult to follow until they tie together at the end of the book. The plots do fit nicely! but it is confusing to follow throughout the body of the book.
This is not Ken Follett's best work. However, for an early work, it's quite good; furthermore, it's a lot better than a lot of the drek that some authors are trying to pass off as literature.
Lets call a spade a spade. The book lacks depth, character development or any sign of tension. However, it was an entertaining read for a person who was travelling by train around Europe and was often stuck for english material. by Follets own admission the book didn't turn out the way he had planned. nobody would try to argue that this book is anywhere as good as 'pillars' but at the end of the day it is still a good entertaining read.
The book has to many stories and everybody make wrong things and they go against all the laws and nobody does nothing, that is unreal, how can anybody steal one million dollars and no one does nothing? Or even worse, they forgive the thieves just for the value of the real paints, that is pathetic.
action is not as intense as later works. ( Lie Down With
Story concept is easy to follow but interest is maintained
by the introduction of several crosses and double-crosses.
Good description of story locations adds to the enjoyment.
