TOPICS

Iain Pears' mysteries are heavily concerned with the ethics of art dealing and the inner workings of government art fraud investigators. Because his characters move from country to country seeking out stolen works of art, he also has time to discuss international law in this area to some degree.  The following websites and publications are helpful in tracking down the real law involved in the art world of Jonathan Argyll and Flavia di Stefano.  Other books with art and law themes include Peter Mayle's Chasing Cezanne (1998,; Ray Sipherd's The Audubon Quartet (1998), Linda Fairstein's Cold Hit (1999), Thomas Swan's The Cezanne Chase (1997), The Da Vinci Deception (1998), and The Final Faberge (1999), Nicholas Kilmer's Dirty Linen (1999), Alistair Boyle's The Con (1996), Arturo Perez-Reverte's The Flanders Panel (1996), Margaret Truman's Murder at the National Gallery (1996), Lise McClendon's Painted Truth (1995), T. C. Van Adler's St. Agatha's Breast (1999), Catherine Dunbar's False Images (2000), Archer Mayer's The Marble Mask (2000), John Malcolm's Mortal Ruin (1998), and Ngaio Marsh's Artists in Crime (reprinted 1997). Also of interest is John Cooper and B. A. Pike's Artists in Crime: An Illustrated Survey of Crime Fiction First Edition Dustwrappers 1920-1970 (1995) as well as the titles listed above.
