Ben Contini, a disenchanted painter of considerable talent, has just buried his mother. Rifling through the attic of her Kilkenny house he stumbles across a Modigliani nude, worth millions. Determined to learn the provenance of the painting, he and Elsa, a disturbed and secretive woman who accosts him at the funeral, become embroiled in the sinister world of Nazi art theft. But they are not the only ones with an interest in the painting. Set in the 1980s, this is a fantastic new audiobook from established thriller writer Joseph Hone, who weaves a breathless, galloping intrigue packed with narrative twists and sumptuous evocations of Europe's forgotten past.
The book seemed like a poor attempt at a Dan Brown thriller. Gary Dikeos as the narrator was speaking too fast and his women's voices are high pitched and childish.
