Excerpt Buy for $14.39

Now a major motion picture directed by Giuseppe Capotondi, with Claes Bang, Elizabeth Debicki, Mick Jagger and Donald Sutherland
 
?A spiky romance laced with art-history references and the trappings of a sleekly elegant neo-noir.? 
?The Hollywood Reporter
 
Fast-talking, backstabbing, womanizing, and fiercely ambitious art critic James Figueras will do anything?blackmail, burglary, and beyond?to make a name for himself. When an unscrupulous collector offers Figueras a career-making chance to interview Jacques Debierue, the greatest living?and most reclusive?artist, the critic must decide how far he will go to become the art-world celebrity he hungers to be. Will Figueras stop at the opportunity to skim some cream for himself or push beyond morality?s limits to a bigger payoff?
 
Crossing the art world with the underworld, Willeford creates a novel of dark hue and high aesthetic polish. The Burnt Orange Heresy?the 1970s crime classic now back in print?has lost none of its savage delights as it re-creates the making of a murderer, calmly and with exquisite tension, while satirizing the workings of the art world as the ultimate con.
