The Collector's Apprentice
FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE ART FORGER

 

“Readers will be swept away by this thoroughly rewarding novel.”

“An exhilarating tale of shifting identities, desire, and intrigue set between 1920s Paris and Philadelphia.”

“I read it in one sumptuous sitting. This is a big story, from a big talent.”

 

New York Times bestselling author B. A. Shapiro has made the historical art thriller her own with such novels as The Muralist and The Art Forger, which The Washington Post praised for its “skillful balance of brisk plotting, significant emotional depth and a multi-layered narration rich with a sense of moral consequence.” With THE COLLECTOR’S APPRENTICE—her third, boldest, and best book with Algonquin—Shapiro takes readers to Paris in the 1920s and the ever-fascinating world of Gertrude Stein’s salon and the artists, such as Matisse and Picasso, with whom shesurrounded herself. These and other real-life icons are deftly integrated into a gripping mystery involving love, intrigue, murder and, of course, art.
