Giotto?s Hand

 
9780002325318: Giotto?s Hand

General Bottando of Rome's Art Theft Squad is in trouble - his theory that a single master criminal, dubbed "Giotto", is behind a string of thefts has aroused the scorn of his rival, the bureaucrat Corrado Argan. He needs a result, and the confession of a dying women provides clues.

Review:

Praise for ‘Giotto’s Hand’:

‘An elegant and amusing book, perfect for those who love a clever puzzle’ Mail on Sunday

‘Iain Pears has a superior line in this kind of tale… A divertingly complex, often comic, story in which the art motif is ingeniously central to the solution’ Guardian

‘’Giotto’s Hand’ provides a wry and illuminating portrait of the often devious world of fine art’ Val McDermid

Praise for 'The Portrait':

'A wonderful, grimly entertaining novel.' Sunday Telegraph

'A revenge fantasy to relish.' Independent on Sunday

'Genuinely creepy.' The Times

'An exquisite miniature that explores the roles of artist and critic with wit and gore.' Evening Standard

'This is an atmospheric tour de force of historical writing, as it is of narrative skill.' Independent

'Taut, disturbing…full of interesting observations about the late nineteenth – and early twentieth-century art world…mesmerising.' Spectator
