Eldritch Swan is a dead man. Or at least that is what his nephew Stephen has always been told. Until one day Eldritch walks back into his life after 36 years in an Irish prison.

He won't reveal any of the details of his incarceration, insisting only that he is innocent of any crime. His return should be of interest to no-one. But the visit of a solicitor with a mysterious request will take Eldritch and his sceptical nephew from sleepy seaside Paignton to London, where an exhibition of Picasso paintings from the prestigious Brownlow collection proves to be the starting point on a journey that will transport them back to the Second World War and the mystery behind Eldritch's imprisonment.

    " I've liked some of Goddard's books before Sight Unseen, and I always like a good art heist book. This one switched back and forth from WW2 to the 1970s, with a mysterious, recently-released-from-jail uncle who shows up and is somehow connected to some stolen Picassos. His nephew has to figure it all out, though we've got it figured out earlier, and it's just not that interesting. "

    " I have loved Goddard's writing from day one and have all his books on my shelves. I considered him a great secret, since he was never promoted, but his books would show up on my local bookstores shelves, only one copy, even of a new title. This time, however, we got more than one copy, and it turns out to have been the worst of the lot. The characters missed by a long shot--not realistic in the slightest, nor particularly likeable, any of them, except the old black valet at the end. No, don't go here if you're looking for Goddard. But you will anyway if you've read Goddard before, probably. "

    " I have read a number of Goddard' s books and this one did not disappoint. The characteristic twists kept me reading to the to the end. "

    " Intriguing English mystery that alternates between 1939 and 1976. One of Goddard's better efforts, I think. "
