really liked it
bookshelves: art, crime, forgery
Read from July 11 to September 06, 2010

** spoiler alert ** Fascinating. A behind-the-scenes look at how artwork is authenticated for those of us who aren't in the business, a true tale of a master manipulator, and the intelligent, painstaking efforts by the police to build their case against him.

Drewe did his best to drag out the trial as long as possible. The judge felt so bad for the jurors that he excused them from Jury Duty FOR LIFE!
