THE EL GRECO PUZZLE

Pub Date: June 1st, 1974
Publisher: Scribners

An extended art treasure hunt for some miniature El Grecos, undertaken by Clancy who is commissioned by a very wealthy man who wants to put the taste which is not in his mouth on the wall, and Susan, a fine arts expert and almost liberated young woman. Susan discounts the possibility of their existence until they reach a monastery where the famous signature is on an old chest and where its custodian Brother Bernardo has disappeared. On to an equally isolated watchtower where the find is tremendous -- 172 -- one each for Clancy and his employer and Susan -- until there were none. No original -- but easy on the mind.
