This novel provides a fascinating glimpse into the antique dealer/art collector’s world. Woven through the main plot, solving the murder of a prominent gallery-owner, are various subplots involving smuggling, pedophilia and greed. Frank Muller tells it all in the various voices of New York, both city and country, providing a resonance that enriches the novel. The Game of Thirty from ancient Egypt is the focal point of the story. As characters move pieces, their actions parallel or relate to the meaning of each square they land on. The characters are all clearly defined by the narrator’s voice, and listening is a pleasure. If you’re a game player, you’ll wish you had this game to try!
