I hardly know what to say about this book because I liked it (generally), but the parts that included the Countess di Grassi (sp) were really irritating. The story had a lot of twists and the ending reminded me of the ending of English movies I used to watch on TV when I was young. That said, I would recommend this book and give it 3 stars.
From the cover: "Irwin Fletcher, a.k.a Peter Fletcher or whatever name might prove convenient. Back from Europe with another promise of marriage, a mysterious death, and a fortune in lost paintings behind him. What appears to be a simple apartment swap turns into a web of intrigue when Fletch finds the flat over-decorated with a beautiful corpse. All the evidence points out that only one person could have committed the crime, and Fletch doesn't think he did it. The olice think differently, though, and if Fletch won't confess, he'll need to find the murderer, himself.
