The Flavia di Stefano Mystery Series

Death and Restoration

JACKET NOTES:  General Bottando can't believe his rotten luck. He's just been promoted--to a position that's heavy on bureaucratic duties but disturbingly light on investigative responsibilities. As if that wasn’t annoying enough, he's received a distressing tip about a planned raid at a nearby monastery. He's confident his colleague Flavia di Stefano will be able to thwart the lot--but she and her fiancé, Jonathan Argyll, are beyond baffled. There's nothing very valuable in the monastery's an collection-except for a supposed Caravaggio that’s currently being restored. There are no solid suspects--unless you count the endearing art chief, the flagrantly flamboyant "Rottweiler of Restoration," and the strangely shady icon expert. And there's really no reason to cause an unholy uproar--until someone commits an unconscionable crime...
