Could it just be a tall tale, or did Jeff Cook really save art dealer Francis Arsenault's life? Jeff is keen to offload his story to an unnamed narrator, and it's a doozy. Jeff's connection to Francis starts when he saves him from drowning, but that's just the beginning. Keeping his good deed to himself, he becomes more than just curious about Francis, worming his way into his life, marrying his daughter, and wondering just what he did in saving the man ...
Deliciously disquieting, this short, sharp morality tale peels back the covers of the art world, raising questions about fate and destiny and just who is manipulating whom.
