The week of the renowned Grand Prix auto race, a well-known artist arrives in Monte Carlo in pursuit of a rogue art dealer who has made a fortune publishing bogus art prints and selling them to an eager public. The crafty scoundrel, aptly named Renard, usually travels in disguise and under many aliases, making him an especially slippery target. The vigilant artist, for his own reasons, intends to track down Renard and expose his ruse. With brush – and pen – in hand, LeRoy Neiman tells a tale of art world intrigue set in glittering Monte Carlo, diamond-head of the French Riviera. In his richly illustrated detective story, Neiman reveals the true heart of one of the world’s most fabulous playgrounds.
