Hailed as a new Umberto Eco, Iain Pears recently became a publishing sensation when his historical novel, "An Instance of the Fingerpost", was sold for major bestseller sums. "Giotto's Hand" reconfirms Pears' talent with this intriguing mystery starring Jonathan Argyll, an English art dealer on the trail of a criminal mastermind responsible for a series of major heists.
