Summary
Born to an art dealer and his pianist wife, Max Berenzon is forbidden from entering the family's business for reasons he cannot understand. He reluctantly attends medical school, reserving his true passion for his father's beautiful gallery assistant, Rose. When Paris falls to the Nazis, the Berenzons survive in hiding, returning in 1944 to find that their priceless art collection has vanished. In Max's obsessive hunt to recover his father's paintings, he navigates a torn city of corrupt art dealers, black marketers, Résistants, and collaborators, uncovering not only paintings but the stories of Rose's heroism, and the truth behind a devastating family secret.
