Publisher Description

When a priceless Leonardo is stolen from the Budapest Museum of Fine Arts, the Hungarian government tries to hush things up and the police show themselves to be completely clueless. Thank goodness for Milla Anderson! A gifted reporter for one of Budapest's daily newspapers, she picks up the trail in Palermo - and of course an international gang is soon hot on her heels. When a Hungarian detective is apparently liquidated and the oily Schönberg-Belmonte begins insinuating his way into Mrs Anderson's hotel, things start to look very dangerous indeed. This fast-paced crime story and lighthearted romantic comedy, set against a backdrop of Mediterranean scenery - and fascist menace - in Italy and Hungary between the wars, is Miklós Bánffy at his best. Now published in English for the first time, translated by Thomas Sneddon.
