With a family at the Arbors about to lose their house, Vinder learns how well edible flowers go in a salad from a neighbor. He’s about as interested in that as in the case that isn’t… until all the cases seem linked.

"Uyttenhove's writing style is similar to the interpretation of art itself: varied and personal, yet unifying and global, all in one fell swoop. A study of arts role in society and how its apprized historically, culturally and individually, Uyttenhove's book is essentially an examination of how people across the globe, and from all walks of life, are willing to risk their lives for art."

What reviewers are saying about Grand Scale Larceny

"What I liked best about this fiction story is the balance between intellect, emotion and action. The story is well informed about art, the business of art and the operation of art museums internationally. It gave me new reasons to care about art and admire professionals in various occupations related to the business side of art. At the same time, there was danger and suspense throughout, giving me that edge of the seat feeling."

"In essence, this book is a look into the souls of three important Dutch people in history: Anne Frank, Vincent van Gogh and Rembrandt van Rijn. During a conversation, some of their views and innermost secrets are at time revealing the depth of their thinking, and shocking in their positions. This is a must read! "
