"An enthralling mystery about chasing the unknown, the nostalgia for what could have been, and most importantly, the persistence of curiosity." --San Francisco Book Review on The Red Notebook

Avid antiques collector Pierre-Francois Chaumont unearths the find of a lifetime at a Paris auction house: an eighteenth-century portrait of a gentleman who looks just like him. Researching into the painting's history, he has the chance to abandon his tedious existence and walk into a brand new life . . .

Antoine Laurain is a Parisian screenwriter, antiques collector, and prize-winning novelist. The President's Hat was a 2013 ABA Indies Introduce choice.
