Desperate to avoid public embarrassment — and to avoid paying a ransom — the Italian prime minister leans hard on Flavia to get it back quickly and quietly.Across town her husband, art historian Jonathan Argyll, begins an investigation of his own tracing the past of a small Renaissance painting — an Immaculate Conception — owned by Flavias mentor, retired General Taddeo Bottando. Soon both husband and wife uncover astonishing and chilling secrets, and Flavias investigation takes a sudden turn from the search for an art thief to the hunt for a murderer.
