Witty and clever art history-mystery featuring Jonathan Argyll, from the author of the best-selling masterpiece 'An Instance of the Fingerpost'.

He needs a result, and the confession of a dying woman may just provide the vital clue.

In pursuit of the elusive Giotto, Bottando's colleague, Flavia di Stefano, sets off hotfoot for Florence, and English art dealer Jonathan Argyll is dispatched to London and then on to rural Norfolk – only to discover a body and a mystery which could lead to the greatest art find of his career...
