Overview

General Bottando can’t believe his rotten luck. He has just been promoted–to a position that’s heavy on bureaucratic duties-but disturbingly light on investigative responsibilities. As if that wasn’t annoying enough, he’s received a tip about a planned raid at a nearby monastery. He’s relying on his colleague Flavia di Stefano and her art-expert fiancé, Jonathan Argyll, to thwart the plot-but both are beyond baffled. The only valuable item in the monastery’s art collection is a supposed Caravaggio that’s currently being restored. There are no solid suspects-unless you count the endearing art thief, the flagrantly flamboyant “Rottweiler of Restoration,” and the strangely shady icon expert. And there’s really no reason to cause an unholy uproar-until someone commits an unconscionable crime…

Praise
