Set in late Renaissance Italy, this novel is a fun blending of fiction and history. Battista della Palla is an agent of King Francois I of France, charged with obtaining many legendary works of art for the French king. He encounters the mysterious Lady Aurelia when he sets out to find a mythical piece of art for the king, a piece which may tip the balance in the ongoing wars in Italy. As Battista and Aurelia work to locate the piece, they endure trials reminiscent of Dante's Divine Comedy and find clues in the work of great Renaissance artists. While not realistic, The King's Agent nevertheless is a fun read, full of adventure and famous Italian art.
