As the investigation proceeds, the police discover a gaping hole in Kate's husband's alibi. Was he really in Liverpool at a conference the night she died? Was Kate the "respectable woman" he claims she was? And why does their daughter scream in terror every time he tries to pick her up...? Images are described.

Breakfast at Sotheby's

by Philip Hook

When you stand in front of a work of art in a museum or exhibition, the first two questions you normally ask yourself are 1) Do I like it? and 2) Who's it by? When you stand in front of a work of art in an auction room or dealer's gallery, you ask these two questions followed by others: How much is it worth? How much will it be worth in five or ten years' time? And what will people think of me if they see it hanging on my wall? Breakfast at Sotheby's is an alphabetical guide to how people reach answers to such questions, and how in the process art is given a financial value. Based on Philip Hook's thirty-five years' experience of the art market, Breakfast at Sotheby's explores the artist and his hinterland (including definitions for -isms, middle-brow artists, Gericault, and suicides), subject and style (from abstract art and banality through surrealism and war), "wall-power," provenance, and market weather. Comic, revealing, piquant, splendid, and occasionally absurd, Breakfast at Sotheby's is a book of pleasure and intelligent observation, as engaged with art as it is with the world that surrounds it.
