Once again a great Donna Leon book. This one introduces the Italian history in WWII where art was sold (aka stole) by/from people trying to flee the circumstances of the day and the ripple through time impact of those events and lingering greed. Odd correlation: Greed like art passes down generations.
Donna Leon is one of my favorite authors! The book, Willful Behavior, did not disappoint! I love the way the author weaves in aspects of Italian culture and subtly and sometimes surprisingly reveals the solution to the mystery.
