1 ELKINS, AARON Glancing Light
Fawcett 1992 0449148297 / 9780449148297 Paperback Good 
Another adventure for curator Chris Norgren, specialist in Renaissance and Baroque at the Seattle Arts Museum (Deceptive Clarity, 1987). Here, Chris i s soon to leave for Bologna to finalize preparations for a show in Seattle called Northerners In Italy. The Bolognese museum and Clara Gozzi, a privat e collector, are lending works to be shipped by the well-established compan y of the Salvatorelli brothers. Both the museum and Clara had been victims of a major theft two years earlier, in the course of which a watchman was k illed. Now, just before Chris's departure, Clara's stolen Rubens has turned up, in a Salvatorelli shipment to Mike Blusher, importer of objets d'art. Chris, arriving in Bologna, meets old friends, a not so old girlfriend, and new enemies. He also finds himself in the middle of a complex train of sca ms and double-crosses that puts his life at risk, but eventually he'll recl aim the lost masterpieces. Chris is cool and likable, the Italians exuberan t and wily, the art history lucid but restrained, and the plot good-natured ly confusing but fun all the way. Elkins at his best.
