Who owns the Turner and the Freud at the Beaverbrook Gallery in Fredericton New Brunswick? The author presents the evidence. The story is anything but dull as we read about eccentric characters, control freaks, deference and disillusion, romantic and political scandals, the earning of vast wealth and the next generation losing it all. A great summer read.
