From the Publisher
Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life--solitary,
perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting
hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter
Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and
becomes his patient. In response, Marlowe finds himself going
beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the
secret that torments this genius, a journey that will lead him into
the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver and toward a
tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism.
Ranging from American museums to the coast of Normandy, from the
late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to
last love, THE SWAN THIEVES is a story of obsession, the losses of
history, and the power of art to preserve human hope.
