Recommended for: anyone
Read in May, 2007

This is an amazingly detailed account of the finding of a Caravaggio painting that has been of the grid for 600 years. Caravaggio was such a character (read: murderer, fugitive, all around hothead) and his biography is expertly interwoven in the narrative. You don't have to love art to love this book.
