* 2021 Stock * Art, Mystery’ is Mayo Thompson’s first published work of fiction since the 1960s. He is best known for his work with the psychedelic band The Red Krayola.  "In ‘Art, Mystery’, a controversial former footballer, now export agent specializing in chrome, accepts an unusual commission from an odd source, the very man who brought him down, a former football referee turned art handler - to find and export a pornographic work of Renaissance art. 

 "Mr. Thompson has given us the perfect cocktail of suspense and whimsy. Very highly recommended—even the most humorless of art historians will be tickled by Art, Mystery!” — Dr. Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen 

“I am impressed with Art, Mystery. Cracking dialogue. I enjoyed reading it. I also thought it was very funny and wore its humour integrally, I mean, like, subtle.” — Josephine Pryde
