Herbert Lieberman has attracted a dedicated and enthusiastic audience with his best-selling thrillers. In The Girl With the Botticelli Eyes, he combines a tantalizing romance, a ruthless struggle for power in the art world, and a villain reminiscent of The Silence of the Lambs. Michael Manship, the curator of the Metropolitan Museum in New York, is trying to locate the final drawings for a show that will be the crowning jewel of his career: a complete collection of Botticelli’s work. Arranging the festivities for the opening night, he locates a lovely young woman who is a direct descendent of the classic Primavera model. But as Manship puts the finishing touches on the exhibit, a madman plans to destroy both the beautiful woman and Botticelli’s priceless canvasses. Read by veteran narrator George Guidall, Lieberman’s novel will capture you from the very first sentence. The interplay of dark suspense, literate plot and graceful language creates a mesmerizing world that will linger in your memory.

    " Gory but fascinating "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ed | 2/4/2013

    " This book gets some points from me for its setting - the engineering of a major showing of an artist in the Metropolitan Museum of Art,the political back biting behind the scenes at the museum and George Guidall's usual quality narration. "

    " Really sucks. I was reading the last part at a great rate just to get through it. Won't be reading anything else by this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanne | 12/9/2012

    " listening...I would give this a 2.5. On the plus side, the insights into the world of art museums and exhibitions were really interesting. On the minus side, the violence of the villain was pretty chilling. While there were some twists to the plot, it was a bit simplistic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mariesa | 12/22/2011

    " I can't believe I'm complaining about too much character development but ... the author spent way too much time dwelling on why the villain was so psychologically screwed up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Justine | 6/26/2011

    " It was good but it lacked action. For a novel with this kind of plot, a more menacing villain could have been created. The drama was a bit too easy, nothing gripping about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 11/11/2010

    " Pretty greusom and many slow spots but overall I liked it. The main attraction is the setting - the exhibit of Botticelli paintings at the New York Art Museum to honor Botticelli's 550th B-day. Under neath is a killer/maniac. "
