The Modigliani Scandal by Ken Follett
"Three people learn of an undiscovered Modigliani: an ambitious young art historian in Paris, a distinguished London dealer and a gallery owner with a financial crisis and a discontented wife. No holds are barred in the fight for possession. Meanwhile an angry young painter plotting revenge executes a brilliant forgery. And an idealistic actress becomes involved in a Robin Hood-style enterprise. The lives of masterpiece hunters, forgers and thieves inexorably collide."
-From Follett's website.

Follett admits that this one wasn't one of his best.
I really enjoyed the beginning of it and it had a lot of potential, but it flopped at the end. He had a good build up, but then summarized the ending rather than allowing events to play out. I almost hope he'll one day revise the story since I think he could do better. Plus, I think it'd make a good movie.
