[Read by Geoffrey Howard]

Witty Italian art-history crime series featuring English dealer Jonathan Argyll, from the author of the best-selling literary masterpiece, 'An Instance of the Fingerpost'.

Paris can do strange things to a man's mind! like making him agree to an apparently harmless favour of escorting a picture to Rome. 'The Death of Socrates' is a particularly nondescript piece, so art dealer Jonathan Argyll can sympathize when its recipient refuses to accept delivery. But in an unusual twist, the same man is found dead a few hours later. Surely the painting wasn't that bad? Now caught up in a murder investigation, Jonathan recalls an attempt to steal the artwork while he was at the train station. Could this be the killer? The bodies start piling up and Jonathan must uncover the dark wartime secret at the heart of the mystery -- before someone puts him out of the picture for good.

With customary wit and panache, Jonathan (and girlfriend Flavia) embark on a breathless chase to capture a killer who has been refining his own particular art for many years.

About the Author:

IAIN PEARS is a journalist and art historian with a doctorate in art history from Oxford. He covered the Dukakis presidential campaign for Reuters and wrote the Jonathan Argyll crime novel series. He lives in Oxford, England.

From AudioFile:

Jonathan Argyll, Italian art dealer, trades a favor with a French dealer and agrees to deliver a painting of the judgement of Socrates to Italy. Before you know it, the receiver of the painting is murdered, and Argyll is involved with the French and Italian police. Howard's narration takes us across the continent from Switzerland to England, from WWII to the present. Pears weaves a tale as tangled as spaghetti. What triggered the murders? Who is telling the truth? Howard's strong voice and characterizations neatly tie together the deception, beautiful art and history.
