Hmmm. I am disappointed to see that this book here is given the informational "(Jonathan Argyll, Book #1)", as Argyll was not my favorite character in the book. My version is listed as "Art History Mystery #1", so I was hopeful that the other books would deal with the art theft squad in Italy because I liked all of them.

ANYWAY. My slight dampening of enthusiasm for the series aside, I'll just say that this was a good time. It's a sort of academic caper, where Argyll thinks he's figured out there's a hidden Raphael under a crappy painting, and he maybe gets scooped, and then there's adventure and hiding in museums and London and Rome and it's all quite FUN. A quick read.
