Product description

Review

A remarkable achievement. The Nazis stole the Gutmann family s art and tried to erase them from history; they almost succeeded. Here, now, with the sweep of a pen and the diligence of a crime reporter, author Simon Goodman has restored his family s legacy. Shocking, stunning and totally unputdownable, The Orpheus Clock is an absolute must read. --Annie Jacobsen, New York Times bestselling author of Operation Paperclip"

"This is a magnificent book, both poignant and chilling. Ultimately it stands as testimony to how family stories can grip across generations, and how fierce is the impulse to right wrongs. It is very moving indeed -- a huge achievement."--Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare with Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance
