This is the story of a con man who scammed the art world in the 1990's. It is a very well done true - crime story, an enjoyable read that sheds a lot of light on the world of fine art. This nonfiction book reads like fiction and is a real page turner. The story of John Drewe, the man behind the scam is extraordinary. His swindle resulted in over 200 forged paintings being verified by authorities as real, and many of them sold at auctions for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Very interesting and well written, it is a wonderful book that I could not put down.
