This is an auction for VILLA VITTORIA by C K Stead.

"An American professor working in London and a young woman magazine photographer meet at an academic conference. From then on, from the Italian Riviera, to London, to a lonely farmhouse in the north of France, the pace of C K Stead's new novel is a surprise.
What is the secret hidden in the forbidden photograph of the reclusive widow of the famous poet and sympathiser to the Fascist cause? Why should this be related to the collapse of a major Italian bank? Whose lives are at risk, precisely – and from what unknown enemies?
Set entirely overseas, this fine novel from C K Stead is part intellectual thriller, part love story, almost unbearably gripping as it unfolds."
