This is a fictional murder mystery. A woman who is restores paintings is commissioned to work on a masterpiece by a Flemish master. She finds a hidden mystery in the painting that sends her on a journey to solve a murder committed 500 years ago. I thought it was great. A couple of the characters I thought were stereotypes, but overall a great read.

Astonishingly intricate, a cerebral mystery that will satisfy any intellectual, even if not a chess aficionado. A small cast of characters, lots of interesting detail about 16th century Flemish art. A very satisfying read.
