Summary

Summary

Three friends descend upon an art auction in search of some excitement. Mike Mackenzie—retired software mogul, bachelor, and fine art enthusiast—wants something that money can't buy. Fellow art lover Allan Cruickshank is bored with his banking career and burdened by a painful divorce. And Robert Gissing, an art professor, is frustrated that so many paintings stay hidden in corporate boardrooms, safes, and private apartments. After the auction—and a chance encounter with crime boss Chib Calloway—Robert and Allan suggest the "liberation" of several paintings from the National Gallery, hoping Mike will dissuade them. Instead, he hopes they are serious.

As enterprising girlfriends, clever detectives, seductive auctioneers, and a hell's angel named Hate enter the picture, Ian Rankin creates a highly-charged thriller, a faced-past story of second guesses and double crosses that keep changing the picture, right until the harrowing finish.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rankin has produced another stunningly clever plot, and peopled it with many convincingly intriguing characters. Can this man do no wrong?” Daily Mirror
“A fast paced, intriguingly plotted tale of a heist in Edinburgh’s art world.” Financial Times
“Pacy, witty, full of action, twists, and splendid dialogue.” The Times
“Rankin is a master storyteller.” The Guardian
“Intricately plotted…Rankin gives his caper novel a claustrophobic edge while injecting enough twists, turns, and triple crosses that even the most astute reader will be surprised at the outcome.” Publishers Weekly
“Engaging…MacPherson portrays the diverse cast with a Scots brogue, grit, humor, and an edge as sharp as a scalpel…fine entertainment.” AudioFile
“Impressive…certainly entertaining.” Kirkus
