About The Book
Alex Connor has always been fascinated by the darker side of the history of art, uncovering many hitherto unknown facts and anecdotes. Her desire to write thrillers has now lead her to combine hard hitting, graphic, contemporary stories with historical events – many of which have remained hidden for years.
“I wanted to make the Old Masters pertinent to the 21st Century. By showing them in their true colours it was possible to link their lives and experiences to the present day.”
“Selfish, immoral, grasping and violent these painters sometimes were, but they were also capable of intense heroism. Their genius casts a long dark shadow and their influence is inescapable.”
These are the Old Masters as they really are.
The Other Rembrandt was also chosen as one of Jule’s Mystery Picks, Barnes and Noble.
Audio extract from the book:
If you know the truth, you will be silenced…
Forced to sell a painting originally attributed to Rembrandt, debt ridden gallery owner Owen Ziegler must take a loss when the work is said to have been painted by one of the master’s students. But Owen believes he has uncovered evidence of secrets about Rembrandt that are much more explosive than simply a painting of dubious origin – secrets that could turn the art world on its head. And when Owen is found brutally murdered in the gallery, his son, Marshall, is launched on a quest not only to solve the vicious crime, but to uncover the three-hundred-year-old secrets worth killing for.
Creating a centuries-old conspiracy ready to explode with devastating consequences, art historian and author Alex Connor has written an incredible page turner that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
