Savvy art expert Fred Taylor, factotum for a wealthy Beacon Hill collector too refined- -and too paranoidto do his own legwork, enjoys an odd but well paid life acting on Clayton Reeds whims.

Reed suspects that there may be a Vermeer worth millions concealed under a boring landscape coming up for auction. Fred, more interested in chasing an independent Cambridge librarian than pursuing Old Masters, finds his mission to get the Vermeer derailed by Reeds purchase of an unsigned nude from a down-and-out photographer of pornography who is subsequently rubbed out in his sleazy studio.

I had previously read a library copy, found it very good, as is the whole Kilmer series of art-crime or detective novels and wanted a copy for my small personal library. This is full of art facts about paintings, artists and art collecting, including its darker side.
Also, its a good crime story as are the others in the series.
