In 2017, Leonardo Da Vinci's small oil painting, the Salvator Mundi, entered the public consciousness when it was sold for a record-breaking $450m in New York. Only re-attributed to Leonardo in 2011 it is widely known as 'the Last Leonardo'. But is it? In this stunning mix of biography, history and thriller, art historian Ben Lewis delves into the history of the picture and the murky dealings of the contemporary art world. What emerges is a twisting tale of geniuses and gangsters, double-crossing and disappearances where we're never quite certain what, or whom, to believe.
