Author J. D. Mallinsonabout this book: Inspector George Mason, of Scotland Yard Special Branch, is assigned to investigate the theft of rare books from important Swiss and Italian collections. A vague tip from an arrested fence in Amsterdam brings him to Zurich, where he quickly fits in to the British expatriate community. Posing as a scout for a tour company, he travels round Switzerland visiting book fairs and bookstores, figuring that the stolen books will eventually turn up for sale. He gradually grows aware that a major conspiracy is afoot, far wider than the theft of rare books and reaching beyond Swiss borders into the highest levels of the Italian government.

This book is aimed at readers who enjoy the more literary type of mystery and who also, perhaps, enjoy European travel and backgrounds, which I describe from personal experience working and traveling in Europe. The cover is based on a holiday photo of Lake Maggiore, which features prominently in the novel. It is my third Inspector Mason mystery.
