4.0 out of 5 stars: Classic idea. This was one of the better books written by Mr. Copland. I thought the whole idea of the classic paintings, and the theft, and hidden idea was excellent, and colorful as well. Since I studied art history, as one of my required subjects in college, I was familiar with some of the paintings that were part of this story. The search for the true culprit was interesting as well. Holmes was at his best in solving the crime, and the story kept one interesting in continuing to read.
