Richard Condon Synopsis: The Oldest Confession is a standalone title by Richard Condon. There are only two people on earth who know that James Bourne is a criminal: his wife and his partner. Despite the fact that he is the most distinguished crook in Europe, Bourne has never been handcuffed. The thieves of London don’t know his name, nor do the dons of Sicily or the police of Paris. A master thief, he’s patient, careful, and utterly discreet – but he’s about to meet his match. A handful of masterpieces adorn the walls of the palace belonging to the richest woman in Spain, and although she’s a friend of Bourne’s, he has never let a personal relationship get in the way of business. He plans to steal a few of the paintings, replacing them with impeccable forgeries made by his Parisian partner. But even the craftiest crook can be outsmarted, and this heist is about to turn deadly.
