Twenty-eight-year-old Kento Tanaka lives in suburban Tokyo with his mother, who still holds down a full-time job in her sixties, and his 87-year-old grandfather. Since he is unemployed and almost always at home during the day, it falls to him to look after his grandfather's needs and he sees it as a nuisance. His grandfather is constantly saying that he wants to die, but he does not suffer from any particularly debilitating diseases or conditions. Kento devises a plan to grant his grandfather's wish, by helping him along to a peaceful, pain-free death: knowing how quickly unused muscles lose their strength, he decides he will pamper his grandfather to the hilt so that his motor functions will atrophy from disuse. At the same time, he takes up a bodybuilding regimen for himself; in effect, to rub his grandfather's nose in what it's like to still be young and virile. One day, however, he goes out and returns early to find his grandfather moving spryly about the kitchen and chomping into some frozen pizza he's heated up for himself with added toppings. So does the geezer want to die or not? Abridged from summary at J'Lit

For spy turned art restorer Gabriel Allon, it has been six months since his final showdown with the murderous Russian oligarch and arms dealer Ivan Kharkov. He has severed his ties with the Office with only one thing in mind: recovery. But this unspeakable act of violence once again draws Allon into a world of danger he thought he had left behind for ever. Allon is persuaded to use his unique skills to trace the painting and those responsible for the crimes. As he investigates, he discovers there are terrible secrets connected to the painting, and terrible men behind them. Before he is done, he will have undertaken a journey through some of the twentieth century's darkest history - and come face to face with some of the same darkness within himself." -- record for an English edition.

What is good is expensive."--Cataloger's translation of cover.
