    MOBI Iain Pears ì Bernini Bust Epub Ñ ì bernini free, bust ebok, Bernini Bust ePUBHaving read one of Ian Pears's 'big' books 'The Dream of Scipio' I decided to have a go at a Jonathan Argyle detective story and I'm very glad I did 'The Bernini Bust' has an engaging hero Argyle an enjoyable ambience Los Angeles mostly but a bit of Italy also an intriguing and unusual plotline and a witty amusing style which is intelligent without ever taking itself too seriously It also ends extremely well I enjoyed it a lot and was frustrated when halfway through I dropped it in the bath and had to leave it for a day to dry out if it is of interest the quality of the paper is good enough for that to work but not dropping it in the bath is preferable Highly recommended
