Catherine Fitzpatrick I re-read the ending several times because I'm not sure I understood it. I think it was Fred who discovered Paul's discovery. But I wonder if in fact something else was going on, in keeping with the book's themes. Stella's mother was friends with Paul, and he helped her create forgeries to sell. Could it work also the other way? That he forged copies of the museum items, and then sold the originals to private individuals who kept quiet? Or is the point that he took the artifacts and artfully put them within various scenes in the rooms? It's not clear to me but as others have indicated, maybe I'm not smart enough for this book.
