The Art Forger/ B.A. Shapiro

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's heist March 18 1990 has been in the news lately with somebody supposedly knowing where the missing paintings are.  This novel is the story of a  professional paint copier-a legal way to own your own piece of art - and you know it's a copy.  The story starts out slowly, but can we all find the Degas 'the bath' or is the whole thing a hoax?   lots of interesting tidbits about Ms. Gardner, not sure if they are true or not, but they add greatly to the story.
Interesting bit of local history.
