The Art Thief by Noah Charney

From AudioFile Magazine:
Hilarious! Delicious! This deftly plotted mystery is filled with art and French food and delightful heroines and heroes. (Or are they thieves?) Author Noah Charney’s knowledge of the art world is extensive—he headed the first international think tank on art theft—so this romp is not only entertaining, but educational as well. Even better than the art mystery are the meals. Simon Vance uses rich accents to create a believable Gallic atmosphere as he “ooo-la-las!” his way through a series of gastronomic adventures, making listeners’ mouths water at the same time that their sides ache with laughter. By the end of the book, it’s hard to care where the paintings end up as long as all the characters are happy. B.H.B Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
