When a priceless stolen masterpiece is discovered among a shipment of reproductions to a Seattle art musuem, the mild mannered, law-abiding curator, Chris Norgren, reluctantly agrees to find out how the painting got there. All too soon, what should have been a pleasant interlude in Italy turns into a bizarre odyssey into shady art world doings and deadly secrets....
"A remarkable storyteller....I look forward to reading more exploits of this appealing sleuth."

Not bad, not wonderful. It's a little too similar to the first Skeleton Detective story - Europe, traveling, accidental mixup with a crime, police considering the hero as mostly a nuisance, light physical damage and the threat of much worse, and the final revelation of who the criminal is - someone presented as a friend. Bah. I dislike unreliable narrators - when I'm told something as a fact and later discover the author and/or the character lied to me. This whole thing seemed unnecessarily baroque, as well. Not terrible, but not my favorite Norgren story, either.
