At ten, painting a perfect Mona Lisa made Annie Kincaid a prodigy. A similar copy at seventeen made her a crook. Lesson learned: genuine art is priceless, and forgery gets you arrested. Now Annie puts her artistic talents to honest use as a faux finisher in San Francisco. But her past may not be painted over as well as she thoughta€b Anniea€™s got bad news for her ex-boyfriend, curator Ernst Pettigrew: the snooty Brock Museuma€™s new fifteen-million-dollar Caravaggio painting is as fake as a three-dollar bill. And the same night Annie makes her shattering appraisal, the janitor on duty is killeda€”and Ernst disappears. To top it all off, a well-known art dealer has absconded with multiple Old Master drawings, leaving yet more forgeries in their places. Finding the originalsa€”and pocketing the reward moneya€”will get Anniea€™s new landlord off her back. But it could also draw her into the underworld of fakes and forgers she swore shea€™d left behind, starting with a close encounter with a changeable but charming art thiefa€b... as Pete trotted off to his warehouse to receive a shipment of stained glass from Germany, I called Ernst again and left messages on both his cell phone and his office numbers. I also tried looking Anton up in the phone book; it had been years since I had been in his San Francisco studio. ... I checked the Yellow Pages.
