Life may imitate art...but death follows it.
While studying art history at New York University, brilliant and beautiful Finn Ryan makes a startling discovery: a Michelangelo drawing of a dissected corpse-supposedly from the artist's near-mythical notebook. But that very night, someone breaks into her apartment-murdering her boyfriend and stealing the sketches she made of the drawing. Fleeing for her life, Finn heads to the address her mother had given her for emergencies, where she finds the enigmatic antiquarian book dealer, Michael Valentine. Together, they embark on a desperate race through the city-and through the pages of history itself-to expose an electrifying secret from the final days of World War II-a secret that lies in the dark labyrinthine heart of the Vatican.
This was a great book. Not his best, but still very good. I really enjoy his storytelling. It's similar to the Da Vinchi Code but not the same. If you've read that, you'll like this. I love Historical Fiction and Christopher is excellent.
The church of world war II will always be fodder for the story teller, as will Pius XII. His reign was indeed cloudy.
