The Titian Committee by Iain Pears

Description: When a member of the famous Titian Committee is found stabbed to death in a Venetian garden, Flavia di Stefano of Rome’s Art Theft Squad is sent to assist. But it seems they don’t want her expertise and are convinced a Sicilian mugger is responsible.

Opening: The initial discovery was made by the gardener of the Giardinetti Reali, an old and stooped figure whose labours generally pass unnoticed by the millions of tourists who come to Venice every year, even by those who eat their sandwiches amidst his creation as they get their breath back from overdosing on architectual splendour.
