The Arnolfini Art Mysteries by Rich DiSilvio
"Can a mystery book that can read almost like an art history book be fun? This one was. Although I loved the references to art there is often an underlying humor in these stories that seem to make them flow well.

“Remembering lies is a full-time job, one best to quit.”

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

“Genius is measured not by static volume but by kinetic vision.”
Rich DiSilvio

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
