    “If you’re as hungry as I am for a really good whodunit. you will welcome the debut of Patricia Move." wrote Anthony Boucher in The New York Times Book Review on the publication of this first Inspector Henry Tibbett mystery more than twenty years ago. The setting is the Italian Alps, where Henry Tibbett. on vacation from Scotland Yard. and his wife. Emmy. have settled in for some skiing. But their hopes for a holiday die when Henry uncovers an international smuggling ring involving some of the hotel guests.

  • Men's Book Group: Oil & Marble
    7:30 pm-9:00 pm

    From 1501—1505, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti both lived and worked in Florence. Leonardo was a charming, handsome fifty year-old at the peak of his career. Michelangelo was a temperamental sculptor in his mid-twenties, desperate to make a name for himself.

    Leonardo despises Michelangelo for his youth and lack of sophistication. Michelangelo both loathes and worships Leonardo’s genius.

    Oil and Marble is the story of their nearly forgotten rivalry. Storey brings early 16th-century Florence alive, and has entered with extraordinary empathy into the minds and souls of two Renaissance masters. The book is an art history thriller.

    Copies available at the Charlotte Library and on Libby using your library card.  Join the discussion here.
