Archaeologist Arnold Landon's attendance at a conference in Rome leads him into the world of professional grave robbers, when he stumbles upon a revenge killing in the Etruscan city of the dead. Back in less glamorous Northumberland, DCI O'Connor has his own problems, investigating an international smuggling ring in ancient artifacts. The paths of the two men converge when a professional killer arrives to continue the blood feud begun in Italy. For Landon and O'Connor the solution seems to lie in the whereabouts of a missing antiques dealer.

From Publishers Weekly:

At the start of Lewis's engaging 16th Arnold Landon mystery (after 2004's Headhunter), the Northumberland archeologist testifies at a trial that turns on proving the authenticity of a Celtic cauldron. Landon's years of experience, however, can't stand up against the academic credentials of a dashing local professor, James MacLean, so the cauldron, which was stolen and sold on the international market, is condemned as a fake, and the dealer, Islwyn Evans, accused of stealing it, is allowed to go free. Landon is in disgrace, as is DCI Jack O'Connor, who had called in Landon as a witness for the prosecution and who shares the story's focus in a fairly successful shifting of narrative. In spite of three murders, there's surprisingly little suspense and the ending is somewhat uneventful. The book's strength lies in the relationships among the characters, notably the dynamics between Landon; his attractive boss, Karen Stannard; and her lovely, implacable assistant, Portia Tyrrel.

From Booklist:

Northumberland archaeologist Arnold Landon returns for another round of amateur sleuthing. In Rome attending a conference, Arnold blunders into a case involving modern-day grave robbers and a revenge killing. Meanwhile, back at home, DCI O'Connor (Arnold's police--officer pal) is having troubles making a case against a globe-trotting gang of artifact smugglers. When a hired killer turns up in Northumberland, determined to settle the score for the Rome murder, Arnold and O'Connor realize their two cases are really one. Archaeology and crime continue to mix well in this series, as they do in Beverly Connor's Lindsay Chamberlain novels. David Pitt
