A fast-paced, twisty thriller about an art heist that spins out of control with murderous results...
Soon to be a major film.

'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard

Art critic James Figueras is a psychotic, an amoral unrepentant killer. Out to make a lasting name for himself, he seeks out the greatest painter in the world, now a hermit in the Florida swamplands. Figueras is after more than the man, however - he wants the work, and something more ... something more horrible than can be imagined.

Crossing the art world with the underworld, THE BURNT ORANGE HERESY ranges from the upbeat Florida sunshine to an art collector who doesn't care how his art is collected, even if it involves murder.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Stunning ... a novel full of genuine fun that also manages to make a level statement about the art world and its hermetic credulities * NEW YORKER *
Amusing ... the writing is clever and mean * HARPER'S *
No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford -- Elmore Leonard
Charles Willeford is in a category all of his own in the annals of American crime writing ... adored by his peers and big-deal crime writers like Donald Westlake and Lawrence Block * LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS *
The Burnt Orange Heresy is both a love letter to and a diatribe against a con artist's world of contemporary art ... an excellent example of noir in the art world and a insightful satire of the creation and selling of fine art as the ultimate con game * prettysinister.blogspot *
