    Story

    Making a living reproducing famous artworks for a popular online retailer and desperate to improve her situation, Claire is lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a painting - a Degas masterpiece stolen from the Gardner Museum - in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when that very same long-missing Degas painting is delivered to Claire's studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery. Her desperate search for the truth leads Claire into a labyrinth of deceit where secrets hidden since the late 19th century may be the only evidence that can now save her life.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Ok, this is nothing at all like the art world that actually exists. This book is really over the top silly, which would be fine if it wasn't also just bad. The ethical positions that the character takes over and over again are not just questionable, but wrong. The storyline is extremely scattered and there are a lot of pointless subplots that peter out with no resolution.


    What aspect of Xe Sands’s performance would you have changed?

    Poor lady. The character was so annoying that I don't think any narrator could have made her likeable, but Sands has a nasal inflection to her voice that really underscored the character's flaws.
