An Innocent Eye. by Philip. Hook

An Innocent Eye.

by Philip. Hook

Publication: Hodder & Stoughton, 2000, London

First edition. Page edges uniformly tanned else fine in dust jacket. A man is murdered in a London hotel room, and the only clue is a Polaroid of Monet's landscape in his pocket. British journalist Daniel Stern recognizes the connection. The unfolding plot interweaves two story-lines ... the tracking down of a Monet painting, misappropriated in occupied Paris in 1940, as well as corruption within the Vatican ... one of its organizations responsible for funding the Catholic education of children throughout the world, is persuading the ultra-rich to part with their money, their jewels ..... and their paintings!!
