I’ve always liked stories – fiction and non-fiction – about art-related mysteries. I’m not sure there’s enough of them to call it a genre. So when I heard about Pears, I decided to give one a try. It was fine, entertaining at times. The plot was incredibly slow until everything got explained with a lengthy exposition at the end – deus ex machina supreme. I think I picked his first one, so maybe they get better. I’ll let you tell me.
