Book Summary

Invited to dinner by a boorish local landowner, Martin Clay, an easily distracted philosopher, and his art historian wife are asked to assess three sooty paintings languishing in a damp corner.  But hiding beneath the dirt is nothing less--Martin believes--than a priceless lost old master.  So begins a hilarious trail of lies and concealments, desperate schemes, and soaring hopes as Martin, betting all that he owns and much that he doesn't, embarks on a quest to prove his hunch, win his wife over, and separate the painting from its owner.
