Review quote

PRAISE FOR"PICTURES
"
"Daley never writes the same book twice. Here, he explores the realm of the European powerful and wealthy, mixing it with a large dollop of gripping suspense. Conte is an engaging character, and this reader hopes that Daley breaks his no-series-characters rule and brings him back."--"Library Journal"
