Agora Books is pleased to announce that A Private View by Michael Innes is out now. Originally published in 1952, A Private View is an Inspector Appleby Mystery and, in a previous life, was published under the names One Man Show and Murder is an Art.
Sir John Appleby is already annoyed at being dragged to a private viewing of a young artist’s work. But when he finds out the exhibition is for Gavin Limbert, his suspicions are piqued. Limbert was recently found shot dead in his apartment. When his most famous piece is stolen during the show, Appleby finds himself embroiled in the dark and dangerous world of art smuggling.
With one masterpiece missing and others disappearing, can Appleby solve this mystery in one night before any more art – or any more lives – are lost forever?
