About the Author:

Iain Pears won the Getty Scholarship to Yale University and worked for Reuters in Rome. He is the author of the bestseller An Instance of the Fingerpost. He lives with his wife and son in Oxford.

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.
