The old submarine-chaser USS Hibiscus, re-fitting in a Hong Kong dockyard before being handed over to the Nationalist Chinese, is suddenly ordered to the desolate island group of Payenhau. For Captain Mark Gunnar - driven by the memory of his torture at the hands of the Viet Cong guerrillas - the new command is a chance to even the score against a ruthless, unrelenting enemy. But Payenhau is very different from his expectations....

    " Didn't finish. Just not following the story. "

    " I always enjoy mysteries that involve events from the past! When art dealer Jonathan Argyll sets out to establish the provenance of a painting he discovers that it was mysteriously stolen and rediscovered decades ago and that its current owner General Taddeo Bottando was one of the policemen involved at the time. Bottando is the former boss of Flavia di Stefano who heads the Italian Art Theft Squad and is now also Argyll's wife. Flavia is involved in a tricky political situation due to another art theft and consults Bottando. The plot raised all kinds of suspicions in my mind, many of which were way off. I took this book on holidays with me and it was entertaining reading for a long train journey. "

    " Just arrived from Sweden and sent previously by Hayes. "

    " Anyone see the irony in that the female protagonist threatens a fight for her position based on women's rights yet she relies on her husband to solve the crimes she is working on? Why can't the author let her be the one to solve the cases? Why does he use a male as the answer guy? At least it's set in the world's most beautiful city and I love to reminisce about my time in Rome as I read the characters' whereabouts. "

    " Fun. Didn't realize it was the end of a series... now will have to start at the beginning. "

    " Well-written, with fast-moving plot and believable characters. "

    " I love it when the good guys profit by not being so good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 1/15/2014

    " Very enjoyable summer reading . . . and it gave me the feeling that I might have learned a little something about art in the process. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/3/2014

    " A very interesting end to the series! Long live Jonathan and Flavia! "

    " This was fun..Rome, art, mysteries, etc "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 10/23/2013

    " I had never read this author before. It reminds me of Donna Leon with Italian Art to some degree. I was afraid the story was totally predictable, but it turned out not to be fortunately! I will read more of his books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 9/16/2013

    " There should be different rating system for mysteries. I think this series is great fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vanda | 8/1/2013

    " I liked the idea of this book, and I liked the plot, and I even liked the characters, but, it failed to grip me and I found the prose a little clunky. Pity, because I like the whole Art Crime thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaja | 5/17/2013

    " Ein ganz netter Krimi, mehr muss ich aber auch nicht aus der Reihe lesen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 4/21/2013

    " It is very hard for an author who produces a near masterpiece on his first try to match himself in later works. A good yarn but not of the same quality as An Incident of the Fingerpost. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 4/18/2013

    " This is a fun mystery set in Rome and the Italian countryside, and, thankfully, the art history details aren't too overwhelming to mask the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbra | 4/3/2013

    " Another great read, but the real work of art here is the plot, Pears leads you off into unknown paths, and guessing who done it right up to the very end. Great Stuff!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 3/4/2013

    " An engaging and clever art mystery/thriller set in contemporary Rome. This is the first I've read featuring partners in life/partners in mystery Jonathan Argyll and Flavia di Stefano. I could easily get attached to these two and their art capers... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 V Reader | 1/27/2013

    " Like lying back in a deep, hot bath; very relaxing after a hard day. With twists and turns enough top up the hot water every now and then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri aka SDMomChef | 1/5/2013

    " This was the first art history mystery that I have read by Ian Pears. It was a fun and intellectually interesting mystery and I'm looking forward to reading more books from this series. "

    " Yet another entertaining instalment in the Jonathan Argyll series. "
