Rick Montoya has moved from New Mexico to Rome, embracing the life of a translator. He's settling in to la dolce vita when a school friend who is now senior in the Italian Art Squad recruits Rick for an unofficial undercover role. Armed with a list of galleries, suspects, and an expense account, Rick would arrive in Tuscany posing as a buyer for a Santa Fe gallery and flush out burial urn traffickers.

But before sunset on Rick's first day in Volterra, a gallery employee dies in a brutal fall from a high cliff.

The local Commissario and his team consider Rick an amateur, and worse, a foreigner. And now they suspect him in the dead man's murder. While the Volterra squad pursues its leads, Rick continues to interview his list: a museum director, a top gallery owner, a low-profile import/export businessman and his enterprising color-coordinated assistant, and a sensuous heiress with a private art specialty and clientele.

When Rick's girlfriend Erica arrives from Rome to visit him, she rekindles a friendship with an alluring, maybe dangerous, acquaintance. Has Rick's role made him the target of both cops and criminals?

  • Disappointing read

    The writer is well versed in Italian and Italy. The plot is average but the characters are not well developed. An unmemorable read although I did wade through it to the end.

    Visual appeal is high because of the author’s skill in depicting Italy and her people. Interwoven with the Italians are inapt Americans to lighten the story a bit and give it more reality. This was not easy reading for me but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

    Great story. Surprising ending. Plot moves right along with lots of descriptions of Italian food and wine. Definitely a must read
