REVIEW ☆ The Rescue Artist A True Story of Art Thieves and the Hunt for a Missing Masterpiece Nt tales of his misdeeds We meet Munch too a haunted misfit who spends his evenings drinking in the Black Piglet Café and his nights feverishly trying to capture in paint the visions in his head The most compelling character of all is Charley Hill an ex soldier a would be priest and a complicated mix of brilliance foolhardiness and charm The hunt for The Scream will either cap his career and rescue one of the world's best known paintings or end in a fiasco that will dog him forever.
