“Vibrant and suspenseful” (The Washington Post), B. A. Shapiro’s New York Times bestselling novels include The Safe Room, The Muralist, and The Art Forger, an exacting tale of stolen paintings, Faustian bargains, and the heart’s foolish choices. She also wrote the nonfiction book The Big Squeeze and four screenplays. In The Collector’s Apprentice, loosely inspired by the lives of Albert Barnes and Violette de Mazia, Shapiro hopscotches between 1920s Paris and Philadelphia with the story of a wronged young woman seeking love, revenge, and the recovery of her father’s art collection amid expatriates, charlatans, and post-Impressionists.
