Praise for Lazarus, Arise 'Effective prose, fascinating subject matter, and a sometimes cynical look at the art world combine in an intriguing read.' -Library Journal F¬red Taylor is shocked. When a passenger at Logan Airport drops to the tarmac after flinging a rolled-up newspaper at him. He is more surprised when he discovers that the paper conceals a beautifully illuminated fragment of a medieval manuscript. Not until much too late does Fred understand that the treasure-its subject is Lazarus-is now his for safekeeping. Fred's search for the identity of the work, as well as of its smuggler and its rightful owner, leads to an encounter with self-proclaimed subversive landscape artist Jacob Geist, a conceptual genius and the author of the famous Line of Sweetness, as well as a New York dealer without scruples. During five days of golden autumn, Fred's race to identify and account for the treasure takes the reader back six hundred years to the manuscript's origin during the Hundred Years War. Nicholas Kilmer, formerly dean of the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts, presently makes his living in the art business.
