Iain Pears has a superior line in this kind of tal. divertingly complex, often comic, story in which the art motif is ingeniously central to the solution. Superior entertainment.

This book was OK but somehow just didn't keep me going. I finished it but it required discipline. I have other Ian Pears books to read and hope they are better than this one.

Second in the series featuring Jonathan Argyll (art historian and dealer), Flavia di Stefano (detective for Rome's Art Theft Squad) and her wily boss, General Taddeo Bottando. This time the mystery arises within an academic committee where members are less than collaborative and more dangerous than they appear. The Venice setting adds texture to a who-done-it and why plot. Highly recommended for those who love a mystery with an insider's view of the art world.

I like all of Iain Pears books. This was part of the art history mystery series and was both well-written and highly entertaining. A wonderful read!

I gave this yawner three stars simply due to the setting. I love Venice. That,however, is where my interest in this little volume ends. I could not bring myself to care, positively or negatively, about any of the characters. I found myself more interested in what they ordered for lunch or dinner than in the "plot". Perhaps, to be fair, I should have read an earlier installation of the adventures of Flavia et al prior to this one. Maybe...but I think not. I would suggest the potential reader skip this one and opt for one of the Donna Leon mysteries instead.

I enjoyed this novel. Not quite as suspenseful as I hoped, but still good. Argyll, Flavia and Bottando make a good team in Italy.

The light hearted and scholarly mysteries by Iain Pears are a delight--like those of Venice by Donna Leon, he takes us into the center of his chosen city --Rome--and sustains his plots, together with the budding romance between the bumbling Jonathan and the well-drawn detective--Fabia. Donna Leon's are even finer, but these are great fun.

Jonathan is at it again . Good fun.
The language and plot remain at the forefront to give flesh to the bones of Argyll and Pears other engaging Italians and Europeans
