Description

Pauline Baer de Perignon is a natural storyteller – refreshingly honest, curious and open. Like the best memoirists, she manages to tell multiple stories simultaneously, to delicately layer meanings and narratives

Pauline Baer de Perignon is a natural storyteller – refreshingly honest, curious and open. Like the best memoirists, she manages to tell multiple stories simultaneously, to delicately layer meanings and narratives

A charmingly told account of a woman's quest to reconstruct her great-grandfather's art collection

Beautifully evokes a vanished world that once stood at the crossroads between the heights of civilization and the depths of barbarism before being overwhelmed by the latter

A terrific book

As devourable as a thriller... Incredibly moving'

Pauline Baer de Perignon transforms an unfortunately commonplace account of paintings stolen by the Nazis into a breathtaking novel of suspense

Grips ever tighter as the investigation proceeds

Combines dogged detective work with family memoir
