THE NOBLE RACE OF GRASSHOPPERS

Charley Miller’s charmed life as an expat in the Paris art world begins to unravel when his estranged friend, Dominic Altman, is killed outside Cannes. Consoled by Mia, a hapless drifter, Charley moves from the highest echelons of the museum business to Monaco’s deepest vaults, connecting the dots of a desperate scheme. The Noble Race of Grasshoppers is a psychological mystery, a story of friendship destroyed by jealousy, greed, corruption, and murder.

Ariel Plotek is a curator at the San Diego Museum of Art. While completing his PhD, he lived in France, where his novel is set.
