Overview

Anart cop friend asks Rick to pose as an art buyer and provides him a list of suspects in Tuscany. Rick's girlfriend Erica urges him to take the job, not knowing that the sensuous Donatella is on the suspect list. Upon arrival, Rick becomes a suspect in a murder—the local commissario is not pleased. The death doesn't appear to be connected to the trafficking, but all of the suspects seem keenly interested in the homicide. While Rick follows instructions from the art cops and the policeman tracks the murderer, the two men take separate paths through the ancient stone streets, their cases slowly weaving together.

Throughly enjoyable read. The writer has agreat way with words. He lets you visualize the locale and characters with his discriptions. No sexual narratives or bloody and gory addons, yet it was hard to put down as the flow of the story keeps your attention.

American Rick Montoya has moved to Italy, his mother's birthplace, to make his way as a translator. But what should be a cut and dried career move, takes on sinister overtones when he is recruited by the Italian Art Squad for an undercover assignment in Volterra to look for Etruscan forgeries and antiquities smugglers. Bodies pile up in the medieval town, and no one is to be trusted. This mystery is fast paced, filled with fascinating detail, and features a setting to send any reader in search of a good travel agent. A fine read and a great introduction to a new series.

Steady but not thrilling, this adventure into the criminal art world takes in Tuscany, one of my favourite places in Italy. Translator Rick Montoya works undercover to lure out the criminals stealing precious artefacts of Tuscan history. Working with the local police chief it starts to get nasty. Who is the mastermind behind the stealing and how will it end? Good questions and you are kept guessing until the end. Worth reading but not high priority.
