Reprint. Film tie-in. Originally published: New York: Crown Publishers, 1971.

A fast-paced, twisty thriller about an art heist that spins out of control with murderous results... Soon to be a major film. 'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore LeonardArt critic James Figueras is a psychotic, an amoral unrepentant killer.

Out to make a lasting name for himself, he seeks out the greatest painter in the world, now a hermit in the Florida swamplands.

Figueras is after more than the man, however - he wants the work, and something more ... something more horrible than can be imagined. Crossing the art world with the underworld, THE BURNT ORANGE HERESY ranges from the upbeat Florida sunshine to an art collector who doesn't care how his art is collected, even if it involves murder.
