Аннотация к книге "The Van Gogh Scam" roy munday:
Residents of a care home face eviction. Their only chance of salvation - fake a Van Gogh painting and sell it in a scam.
Danny Roberts' art career is going nowhere.
He's penniless and he's a crap teaching job in the Three Elms care home - whose owner is quietly murdering the residents to gain their remaining assets to solve her financial problems.
Ex-conman Alfie Edwards devises a plan he believes will rescue their home from bankruptcy.
If Danny can fake a long lost Van Gogh painting, it can be used in a sophisticated scam and raise the millions needed to rescue the home. Danny Roberts is persuaded by Alfie, and the scam is set in motion.
Oh, and just one of the problems to overcome. First, they've got to steal the original Van Gogh's famous Sunflowers painting from London's National Gallery!
The story moves through the low and the high end of the art world where a painting's provenance is everything and where everyone is willing to bend the rules to gain prestige or money.
