About the Author:

IAIN PEARS is a journalist and art historian with a doctorate in art history from Oxford. He covered the Dukakis presidential campaign for Reuters and wrote the Jonathan Argyll crime novel series. He lives in Oxford, England.

From AudioFile:

Jonathan Argyll, Italian art dealer, trades a favor with a French dealer and agrees to deliver a painting of the judgement of Socrates to Italy. Before you know it, the receiver of the painting is murdered, and Argyll is involved with the French and Italian police. Howard's narration takes us across the continent from Switzerland to England, from WWII to the present. Pears weaves a tale as tangled as spaghetti. What triggered the murders? Who is telling the truth? Howard's strong voice and characterizations neatly tie together the deception, beautiful art and history.
