Lords and Liars: The Secret Story of the Christie’s-Sotheby’s Conspiracy
Christopher Mason (au)
In 1997 it was announced that Sotheby’s & Christie’s were being investigated in Britain & the U.S. The secretive customs of these venerable English institutions & their society were to be examined. This is the full story of the scandal that relieved many of the world’s aristocrats of hundreds of millions, & sent one of the world’s billionaires to jail. Based on court materials & extensive meetings with 500 participants in over 2400 interviews, Mason investigates what really happened behind the thin veneer of respectability. He persuaded key players to speak frankly for the first time, such as Sir Anthony Tennant, chairman of Christie’s & one-time rescuer of Guinness Plc. “A riveting portrait of class, ambition, excess, & Old Etonians behaving badly.”
