Read full description of the books:
We can no longer use our little joke that campus politics are so nasty because the stakes are so small. They are now so nasty because the stakes are so large.
Syracuse University political scientist, Dwight Waldo
A group of academic experts on Titian get some government money for their catalog project and suddenly the stakes get a lot higher. Quite deadly, in fact.
One of the Titian experts attending a conference in Venice has been found stabbed to death in a bed of lilies. Can Titian himself provide the clue?
This is the second of Ian Pears' clever and erudite art crime novels. As always, I love his characters: the bumbling art historian and dealer, Jonathan Argyll, and Flavia di Stephano and Geneeral Taddeo Bottando of the Italian National Art Theft Squad. This isn't quite as strong a novel as the later books in the series, but the Venetian setting is glorious, the plot is twisty and the denouement satisfying. A fun light read. Three and a half stars.
