** Unbecoming by Rebecca Scherm


Unbecoming explores the seedy side of the art world with a heroine who starts as a good girl but ends elsewhere. I was skeptical at first about the Paris setting, fearing another romantic illusion common in American writers, but it’s all about the business of fakes and not the mystique of cobbled streets. The slow unfolding of the real story is reminiscent of Gone Girl, and the art fraud themes of Caveat Emptor. Quite a good story!
