The Art of the Steal is the only book that tells the whole truth about the price-fixing scandal that rocked the auction world and put one of America's richest men behind bars. It's the story of billionaire tycoon Alfred Taubman; the most powerful woman in the art world, Dede Brooks; and the wily British executive Christopher Davidge-who cheated their clients out of millions until federal prosecutors put a stop to their high-end thievery.
Brilliantly written by Christopher Mason, it's an unprecedented look inside this secretive, glamorous industry by the only reporter with access to all the key players. From galleries and boardrooms in London, Paris, and New York to parties in Palm Beach to the courtrooms of lower Manhattan, The Art of the Steal is a fascinating, damning story of dirty dealing in the art world.
