Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

General Bottando of Romes Art Theft Squad believes that a lone criminal mastermind—dubbed “Giotto”—has been stealing priceless Renaissance art for over thirty years. But his theory—prompted by a letter from an embittered, dying old woman—is scorned by archrival Corrado Argan, a bureaucrat more interested in politics than policing.

Bottandos right hand, the beautiful Flavia di Stefano, quickly locates a possible culprit—but hes in England. Since the conniving Argan considers even a trip across town an unnecessary expense for Bottandos squad, Flavia must rely on her fiancé, Jonathan Argyll. In England on business, he finds the suspect suspiciously dead. Thats a pity—especially for Jonathan. Were he not on the scene—raving about art thefts and coincidences—the police may have ruled that the deceased had a few too many and tripped on a loose stair. Now, Jonathans passport has been lifted until Her Majestys magistrate is satisfied that he has told all he knows…
