BLURB

Just look at them. That carefree highflying billionaire and his beautiful flawless playthings. Let’s call him Saverio. Sipping champagne from crystal flutes as the light wind caresses their hair. They laugh and cavort in their superbly-appointed oak-panelled pleasure craft in every harbour from Hong Kong to Sardinia. This particular fish, when he’s out of water, is a modern horse trader who buys and sells art like blue-chip stocks. Not for the love of it, you see – on his part it is pure untrammelled speculation, a legitimate way to maximise profits. The artist never gets a cut. Saverio’s business might be shady but his tones and monogrammed lounge suits are pure velvet. He doesn’t look like a thief, does he? He makes a million every time he sells a piece, from unprovenanced etchings by Dutch Old Masters to life-size Qing vases. He is an artist, I’ll give him that: a con artist. His artfulness is that he never gets his hands dirty and his polished act is so rehearsed that that no one, not even me, knows they’re being played. [Daniel Browning]
