From the Publisher:
Following the success of Iain Pears's first mystery, The Raphael Affair, The Titian Committee finds glamorous, temperamental Flavia di Stefano of the Rome Art Theft Squad and diffident art historian Jonathan Argyll once again faced with art skullduggery and unexpected danger when murder interrupts an international art committee conference on Titian, which is meeting in Venice. Cutting their way through a maze of deceit that ranges from the fifteenth-century studio of a great master to the bottom of the Grand Canal, they eventually untangle a centuries-old mystery involving Titian's own life.
