Fiction • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Claire is a Sotheby's expert who has her sights on two paintings by a "first-rate second-tier artist." If she can put together an auction with these paintings, it will strengthen her position in the art world. Robert Hughes is an arts reporter for THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, and his insider's savvy offers listeners much satisfaction. Hughes narrates his debut novel, and, while his insights into the behind-the-scenes machinations of a grand auction house are fascinating, his reading falls short of the mark. With strong characters and a plot bursting with intrigue, sophistication, and romance, it's a shame that this multilayered story remains a one-dimensional listening experience.
