The Art thief,
by Noah Charney
Published by Atria books USA in 2007 and CBS Company Great Britain in 2008
The book tries be a thriller fiction.
The story is based round art crimes, involving the theft of the highly scholastic and skilled world of art theft and forgery. Though an interesting plot the presentation tends to wean towards becoming a documentary instead of a racy grip your attention thriller.
Focus is neither art nor detection the books strikes a via media which is what makes it a little bland.
Good single reading book.
