Description

Editorial comment ... 'If truth is more interesting than fiction, then the story of an iconic fire painting's creation and disappearance is ripe for Hollywood: a starving Russian artist creates a masterpiece and becomes a success at home and abroad, only to lose it all, including the painting. The painting then becomes the subject of a mystery that involves a rogue's gallery of shady characters and one of America's most famous business families, and reaches into the halls of the White House and the Kremlin -- all set against the backdrop of a century's worth of war and international politics.'
