Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Theo Decker, a thirteen-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that takes the life of his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the criminal underworld. As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antique store where he works. He is alienated and in love. His talisman, the painting, places him at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.
