A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

An impressive late life fictional debut by a major American art critic, this noir and evocative thriller plunges the reader into the tapestry of the 1990's Manhattan art world with with a striking and distinct sense of place and time. The wife of a prominent member of the artistic community is found shot to death in their SoHo loft, after which her husband confesses to the murder. Art dealer Jackson Wyeth however has strong doubts about his culpability as there is tenuous evidence that the husband was not even in the country at the time. Against a background of buzzing, upmarket and glamorous art galleries, decadent parties, wanton beauties and an effervescent New York full of private vices and excitement, the unpredictable plot twists come fast and furiously as the story plumbs the depths of the human heart and terrible sins with maestria and elegance. Truly impressive. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Synopsis

Soho Sins by Richard Vine

They were the New York art scene's golden couple until Amanda Oliver was found murdered, and her husband Philip confessed to shooting her. But was he a continent away when she died? Art dealer Jackson Wyeth sets out to learn the truth, and uncovers the secrets of Manhattan's galleries and wild parties, a world of beautiful girls growing up too fast and men losing their minds. But even the worst the art world can imagine will seem tame when the final sin is revealed...

Reviews

'The New York art world of the '90s, awash in money, frames a suspenseful crime novel that's also a gripping morality tale involving sex, ambition, deception and murder. The intricate plot, blending real and fictional places and persons, delivers a devastating, intriguingly ambiguous surprise ending.' - Elizabeth C. Baker, editor-at-large, Art in America

'Darkly glamorous, brimming with sophistication and thrumming with a decadent s regret, SoHo Sins stuns right through to its final pages. I couldn t put it down.' - Megan Abbott

'Drama, deceit, and debauchery...Richard Vine brilliantly brings the underbelly of the art world to the forefront in this dark tale of woe. Phenomenal.' - Eric Shiner, Director, The Andy Warhol Museum

'Savvy and deeply enjoyable. The Great Gatsby meets Raymond Chandler.' - Bill Pangburn, John Jay College of Criminal Justice

'A dark, sophisticated and twisted tour that puts the reader right in the middle of the art world, with no escape till the last page.' -- Jonathan Santlofer, author of THE DEATH ARTIST
