Praise for Cold Tuscan Stone... 'Should appeal to fans of Jonathan Gash's Lovejoy novels and Iain Pears' Italy-set art-theft series starring Jonathan Argyll and Flavio di-Stefano.' -Booklist Rick Montoya has moved from New Mexico to Rome, to work as a translator. He's still settling in when a school friend, now senior in the Italian Art Squad, recruits him for an under-cover role as a buyer for a Santa Fe gallery. They hope to flush out priceless burial urn traffickers. But before sunset on Rick's first day in Volterra, a gallery employee dies in a brutal fall from a high cliff. Now the local Com-missario suspects him in the dead man's murder. Then Rick's girlfriend Erica arrives from Rome and renews a friendship with an alluring, maybe dangerous, acquaintance. Is Rick now the target of both cops and criminals? David P. Wagner is a retired Foreign Service Officer who spent nine years in Milan and Rome during his career. He lives in New Mexico with his wife. www.davidpwagnerauthor.com
