In a deserted artist’s studio in the heart of Rome, detectives stumble upon a scene of shocking brutality: two bodies, freshly killed. Looming over them is a painting that bears all the hallmarks of a Caravaggio: a brilliantly colored canvas depicting a violent tableau of beauty and depravity. . . . In David Hewson‘s bold new novel of suspense, this grisly discovery sends Detective Nic Costa on a desperate chase through the streets of his city.
From modern forensics to the realm of the Medicis, from the force of faith to the corruption of power, The Garden of Evil is a novel steeped in Roman history-and an unforgettable experience in richly atmospheric, modern-day suspense.
