Read full description of the books:



This was a very enjoyably easy reading little book, part of a series I had never hear of until I picked it up. Jonathan Argyll is an Englishman living in Rome trying to make a living as an art dealer, procrastinating about accepting a job as an art teacher. His partner, Flavia, is a member of Rome's Art theft squad and the art theft connection is what I really enjoyed about this book.

Most of it takes place in England, where Jonathan goes to visit an art dealer as a favour to Flavia's boss - when he arrives the dealer is dead. How does the dead art dealer tie into the theory of a single master criminal responsible for a series of art thefts over a couple of decades? That is what the book unfolds for you....

While I would not go so far as to say that this is a 'whodunnit' it is a fun little detective story. Anyone who likes detective stories with a theme should enjoy it. The conclusion was no surprise - not even to me, who has no facility for guessing solutions to mysteries.

Most is set in an English town, and I loved the village politics and gentle fun being poked at communities where everyone knows everyone. The descriptions of Italian departmental politics were also light, fun and entertaining. I will definitely read more of this series.

Reviews of the Giotto's Hand


ELLIOTT

One of my favorite

NATHAN

Why do you need to write a phone?

ELLIOT

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

ELIZA

Light fiction for Cloudy day
