Le secret de la Vierge à l'enfant (French Edition)

Le secret de la Vierge à l'enfant - Iain Pears This closes Pears' art mysteries in a clever way. Like the last two books, Pears brings back Mary Verney and ties up tangling threads by connecting two unlikely characters. All's well that ends well since the General retires, Jonathan and Flavia live happily ever after. Not all is black and white, the art mystery at the centre of the plotis actually a distraction and doesn't really gets a resolution. The end is open ended in a way that is satisfying and makes you smile. Jonathan, Flavia and the General probably are still searching for missing work of art only in a less official way.
