The Bernini Bust

JACKET NOTES:  Jonathan Argyll has finally done something right--he’s sold an overpriced Titian to a well-endowed museum in L.A. Not had for an art dealer who thinks selling paintings is the most unpleasant part of his job. And never mind that the Moresby Museum is known more for tackiness than for taste. Argyll's just anxious for the deal to be done--and he's come to L.A. to drop off the painting and pick up the check. But it turns out there are a few devils lose in the City of Angels. Like the sneaky art dealer whom Argyll suspects of smuggling a Bernini bust out of Italy. And the museum's imperious owner, who’s got a lot more money than sense--and is murdered right before both the smuggler and the bust disappear...
