Homer Kelly’s 14th case sends the Concord, Mass., professor and his wife and colleague Mary (The Face on the Wall, 1998, etc.) to a rare book conference in Venice, where Mary’s tourist photos will reveal a missing woman and lead to a stolen treasure, a modern miracle, and sudden, violent death—all illustrated with an exceptional profusion of Langton’s line drawings.
