Narrative and dialogue aplenty but precious little action 'til the end. If you are into art history and the where with all of fraudulent paintings then this may be you cup of tea.

In this engaging mystery Detective Bottando and his assistant Flavia di Stefano join British art historian Jonathan Argyll as he tries to prove that an obscure canvas hanging in a church in Rome hides a lost Raphael—with deadly consequences.

I was not a fan of the pairing of Jonathan Argyll & Flavia di Stefano. Really wasn't a fan of the characters at all. He's a bumbling idiot who instantly falls for a beautiful girl and she's stuck up and rude.
To try and make them a team and love interests to boot is just too much.

The mystery was okay but the end was overly dramatic with an improbable ending.

Only one in this series I've read but I was such a big fan of "Stone's Fall", I decided to give it a try. Not as good, but still an entertaining story of art forgery & murder.
