The Collection

1 Mins read

Collection, Lance CharnesLance Charnes has produced a crime thriller that’s fun and funny. Ex-con Matt Friedrich has to figure out who’s using stolen art works in a giant money-laundering scheme. Rubbing elbows with investors in high-priced art sounds rather civilised, especially in sophisticated Milan – until he finds out that under the veneer of connoisseurship are some vicious and dirty characters, indeed. Charnes gives Matt a breezy first-person narrative style, but never allows the tension to flag. Read the full review here.
