The discovery of a lost Caravaggio painting yields
centuries of deadly secrets in this pulse-pounding novel of
historical intrigue and modern-day suspense…
In seventeenth-century Rome, an arrogant and reckless artist
named Caravaggio drinks and brawls his way through his
violent, insatiable life, all while painting some of the
world’s greatest religious works of art. But it is his
bitter feud with Giovanni Roero, a brutal knight in the
Maltese Order of St. John, that is his fatal error.
Now, in the village of Monte Piccolo, a priest claims to
have discovered a lost painting by the famed artist in the
storage room of an orphanage. Retired professor A. R.
Richman believes it’s a delusional dream. But Lucia, a
visiting art student, convinces him otherwise and recruits
her best friend, Moto, to join in the quest. They think
The Judas Kiss is worth investigating. But tracing
its provenance back four hundred years could prove to be
just as treacherous as the master’s final days.
Richman, Lucia, and Moto begin chasing the mystery,
uncovering a blood feud hidden for years that has now
spilled into the twenty-first century. As they follow where
it leads—down a trail of murder, betrayal, and
vengeance—they find a secret history that someone will kill
to keep buried.
