Fascinating and great fun: I'm talking about the research and writing of it (yes, I wrote it). Medieval mystery meets modern murder; think DaVinci Code, "Bones," and Girl with a Pearl Earring. The cast of medieval characters includes Petrarch, his unrequited love Laura, the Italian painters Giotto and Simone Martini, and an Inquisitor-turned-Pope. Now that it's finished, I miss them already! I hope others find it as fascinating & fun to read as I found it to write...

Olivia I have a question about this book. I am currently reading it and just read on pgs. 226-7, "Then there was Isabella, with whom I'd had a brief romantic encounter, and who'd died in Japan when the tsunami struck the coast where she was staying".

I have read all of the Body Farm novels, with the exception of Bones of Avignon, and the last I recall Isabella was on the run from the police. She had left a origami crane and baby crane as a message to Bill but he hadn't figured out if that meant she was pregnant or not.

My question is: Was her dying due to the tsunami stated in one of the other books and I just don't remember it or is this possibly a factual error?
