Overview

"Wrath of the Lamb" is Volume 8 in the Lia's Italian Art Theft Adventure Series.

As a reader exclaimed, "Lia's adventures toss me instantly into Italy and the Renaissance! And so what do I do- I keep returning for another and another adventure with Lia and her crew. I'm helpless!"

In Volume 8 a man with the infamous Florentine name of Girolamo Savonarola assembled a gang lead by a professional contract killer- a woman. His objective was to destroy paintings and sculptures remaining in Florence depicting the Wrath of the Lamb, the end-time imagery of Revelation, the final book in the bible.

This story begins in the office of the Uffizi curator who invited the Commander to join him and Direttrice Lia Frisari. The subject concerned a chain of defacements that had occurred over many months in the Uffizi, Accademia and in the SM Novella. Vandals? This they had labeled these attacks, not as thefts. Vandalism had been their assumption but no longer.

Last Sunday, days before this meeting there had been a fifth defacement and this was of yet another treasure in il Uffizi. There must be more to this than vandalism. Surely.

Lia Frisari was married months ago just before Christmas. She had returned to work last month. She was finding it hard to completely return. She was daydreaming in the curator's office was he was explaining the subject of Wrath of the Lamb.

Fans of Direttrice Lia Frisari were first introduced to her at the very end of volume 19, "They Never Quit", in the author's long running Art Theft Adventure Series. Ispettore Lia Frisari then became prominent in all subsequent adventures: "Renaissance Women", "On the Side", "Promises", "Becoming God", "Sisters", "Protecting Papa", and "The Last Job".

The first volume in Lia's series is, "Direttrice Lia Frisari".
