Overview

Chase Morse and his brother, Haydn, heirs to an auction-house empire, split their time between Manhattan and The Moorings, the idyllic family estate on Nantucket, but when a body turns up at The Moorings and a priceless painting goes missing from inside the tight-security vault at the auction house, family secrets get harder to keep. As Gabrielle, a French journalist sent to write features on the glittering New York art world, becomes entangled with the family, the police start digging, and the stakes are high—eighty million dollars, pilfered and then lost in risky Russian investments. Can an entitled one-percenter with expansive resources, and enlisting the help of a wily art forger, outsmart the art cops and the old guard within the company?

The glittering, exalted world of art auctioning hides love, hate, and murder in a wealthy and socially prominent family when the forgery of an anonymous Cape Cod painting threatens to destroy them all.
