Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is dated, and the plot took a while to sink in for me. However, once I got into the swing of things, I enjoyed this book very much.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Reportedly one of the first books done by Follett, the
action is not as intense as later works. ( Lie Down With
Lions ).
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.

I read this book based on Amazon's Book Matcher recomendations. It was ok, and I read it fairly quickly (less than a week), but it is definitely not as good as his more recent works. I wouldn't go searching for a copy of this book (borrow it from the library, if you feel that you must read it).
