  • Le monde de l'art est en émoi : Owen Zeigler, un important galeriste de Londres, vient d'être retrouvé sauvagement assassiné. La police conclut assez vite à une affaire de vol ayant mal tourné. Mais Marshall, le fils de la victime, n'est guère convaincu par cette version officielle. Il décide alors, à ses risques et périls, de mener sa propre enquête pour démasquer le meurtrier de son père.
    Ses recherches convergent peu à peu vers des lettres anciennes révélant un terrible secret sur le peintre Rembrandt. Des documents susceptibles de provoquer l'effondrement du marché !
    Entre Londres, New York et Amsterdam, Marshall plonge dans le monde impitoyable de l'art et de l'argent, des impostures et des contrefaçons. Un enquête palpitante et stupéfiante pour faire éclater la vérité sur ces lettres maudites, mais surtout pour mettre un terme aux meurtres qui s'enchainent dans des mises en scène de plus en plus macabres.

    Un récit enlevé qui réussit très vite à créer une atmosphère oppressante. Grâce à une construction diaboliquement efficace, alternant les chapitres contemporains et les flashbacks au XVIIe siècle, l'auteur ménage le suspens jusqu'au dénouement final totalement inattendu.
