New York Times bestselling author Iain Pears—who “exhibits quite a masterful touch at suspenseful storytelling”*—has delighted fans and critics alike with his charming mystery series featuring art dealer Jonathan Argyll. In The Last Judgement, Argyll agrees to transport a decidedly nondescript painting from a gallery in Paris to its new owner in Rome. But when his mission is plagued by robbery and murder, Argyll must investigate the dark secrets in the painting’s past—before someone tries to put him out of the picture for good.
