Summary of The Last Judgement Summary of The Last Judgement Reviews for The Last Judgement An Excerpt from The Last Judgement
Iain Pears-who "exhibits quite a masterful touch at suspensful storytelling"*-has delighted fans and critics alike with his charming mystery novels featuring art dealer Jonathan Argyll. In The Last Judgement, Argyll agrees to transport a decidedly nondescript painting from a gallery in Paris to its new owner in Rome. But when his mission is plagued by robbery and murder, Argyll must investigate the dark secrets in the painting's past-before someone tries to put him out of the picture for good.

“A sophisticated, adventurous, and gripping story that is sure to hold wide appeal.”Booklist
