This is definitely a thriller for art lovers. Of which I am not one, apparently. I like art, but I roll my eyes at the rhapsodizing about all the little details of Caravaggio's art that was found here. Ugh. I love things set in Italy, but for some reason, this one just didn't work all that well for me. The author took himself far too seriously, as did all of the characters, and it turned me off. Since there's hardly a mystery, it seemed like just a way to show off all the knowledge about painting, painters, Italy, etc. Well done, but just not that enjoyable.

Stephanie Miller I definately agree about the lack of mystery. I was in the mood for some suspense and I thought the book would provide that. But the killer was handed to you 100 pages in without having to work for it. booooo
