A no-holds-barred New York banker, a former Sotheby's art expert, a Japanese mogul, an FBI agent, the KGB, and a titled English lady all fight for a Van Gogh painting worth millions. The action ricochets from New York to Britain to Romania, where a copy is made, to Tokyo and back through Europe as the expert tries to stay one step ahead of her pursuers, who include an ultra-evil female assassin. Byron Jennings's reading complements the exciting pace, and he gets all the accents right, no small task. The plot pushes credibility, but the abridgment makes sense, so come along for the chase.
