Modigliani. Unarguably one of the greatest artists who ever lived. Modigliani's women. Those elongated, haunting figures, as eternally provocative as the Mona Lisa. Adn Modigliani's missing masterpiece. A priceless lost treasure - or a chillingly dangerous game. Up and coming artist Peter Usher has still to exhibit anywhere, still to make even the most modest mark on the London art scene. But as rumour turns to reality, Usher finds himself caught up in a race to uncover the shadowy figures behind a breathtaking scam. Will art genius ever be rewarded? Will the brush prove more deadly than the gun?

3.0 out of 5 stars It is what it is... May 10 2004
Format:School & Library Binding
an early written story by a future great storyteller!Ok, so it's not Triple of Jackdaws, but it's worth reading nonetheless.Pick up a copy and look for glimpses of brilliance, that's the way I approached it! I found a few, but not many...see for yourself, you might be surprised!

2.0 out of 5 stars A waste of the art May 1 2004
Format:School & Library Binding
First of all let me tell you that this book could be written in 100 pages less, taking that little part away, how could ten art experts buy a fake copy of a paint, they don't study how to recognize a fake?
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Oct. 29 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book outside a small bookshop while i was strolling the streets of Amsterdam. I was on my summer holidays from Ireland and was quite lost. Being an avid Follet reader i snatched it up immediately.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lite and Trite Oct. 2 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love Follett books, but this is his weakest effort. The characters are not well developed and none are endearing. You don't find yourself pulling for or against anyone and I could care less about having a beer with any of the characters. The plot is far fetched and the ending is worse. Pick any other Follett book and you will be better off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money. June 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The plot is weak, the storyline is dull, the characters are shallow, and the writing is mediocre. There's nothing to this book. I read the whole thing between taking off from New York and landing in California. What a disappointment!
