In The Titian Committee, the junior, female member of a group of art historians is found murdered in a Venice botanical garden. Local police suspect that its a mugging gone wrong but when Flavia makes an appearance on the scene, she suspects a more malicious intent. Soon, interviews with the surviving members of the committee reveal a web of personal rivalries, dislikes, and unethical doings. And when the surviving members become not-all-still-surviving, it becomes clear that at least one murderer is at work. Jonathan Argyll, coincidentally, travels to Venice to pick up a group of unimportant paintings from an elderly Marchesa and discovers that some unguessed connections between these minor works and the great Titian may exist and may have gotten someone killed.

This whole series is witty, intelligent and entertaining. I love the satire on the politics of art and policing. Both Flavia and Jonathan are memorable heroes and Bottando, Flavia´s chief, is absolutely magnificent.
