KIRKUS REVIEW

New York Orientalist Marius Kagan is a blunter, more active, replacement for Delving's antiquarian Dave Cannon (opuses 1, 2, 3, 4) and now the theft of a Sung vase from a museum menaces the entente between China and the West. The vase may be difficult to carbon-date but so are the personnel who work in circles on both sides of the Wall and the Curtain. None of this might clear Sotheby's appraiser, but it's an easy evening with a nice romance for later.
