The Raphael Affair

This is a very interesting book. It ends up as a murder mystery, though it's really about art theft and forgery and so on. I really enjoyed it. I liked most of the main characters, particularly the two that I gather continue the series. It's also a nice break from the usual murder mysteries in that it's neither set in the US nor the UK (it's set in Italy) and one gets a completely different kind of government influence on the investigators. Also, being set on continental Europe there's occasional travel to other countries, including Switzerland and the UK. This was a quick, fun read and I'd be interested in reading more in the series.
