Slipstreamy. “Set in Holland and in Provence, this surprising literary work follows a trio of Vermeer lovers who head to The Hague to see a Vermeer exhibition. What begins as a simple journey is muddled quickly when the group becomes unwittingly enmeshed in a web of international terrorists. . . Masquerading as a noir mystery, the text transforms into a comedy of errors: a woman who is kidnapped turns out to be the wrong victim; the elevator man in a charming inn becomes an insatiable lover who may be a Mossad agent. . . Bayley continuously twists and confounds the reader, and the story turns voraciously on itself in a parade of exquisite tensions and releases.” #15118
