really liked it
Read in January, 2011

This is as much the story (sometimes very funny story!) of the theft of Edvard Munch's "The Scream" as it is a character study of Charley Hill, the world's greatest art detective. I'm a sucker for books about art theft and forgery - they're a very interesting mirror on cultural values - and this is one of my faves.
