It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, and Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is about to discover that theres more to this crime than meets the eye. Making a living reproducing famous artworks for a popular online retailer and desperate to improve her situation, Claire is lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a paintinga Degas masterpiece stolen from the Gardner Museumin exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when that very same long-missing Degas painting is delivered to Claires studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery.
