The Collector’s Apprentice

A Novel

By B. A. Shapiro
Narrated by: Xe Sands
Length: 10 hours 20 minutes

The Collector’s Apprentice

“B.A. Shapiro’s novels (The Art Forger, The Muralist) make me fall in love with art. In her writing the canvas is only one side of a multilayered story about art, artists, and the events that make history. In The Collector’s Apprentice, her characters are chameleons, shedding identities as they revolve around the magnetic works of post-Impressionist mavericks like Matisse and Picasso. Death, scandal, romance, and mystery drive the twists and turns of this thrilling novel that I absolutely could not put down.”
