When the bodies of twin brothers, both successful art dealers, are found stripped naked, necks bound with wire and legs obscenely contorted, their brutal murders are linked to the mysterious disappearance of two paintings by the master Caravaggio. Investigators are confounded and it falls to art expert Gil Eckhart to find the killer before he slays again. As the search for clues takes him from the glamorous skyline of New York to the fetid catacombs of Palermo, Sicily, Eckhart traces the horrific truth behind Caravaggioâ??s dark and bloody secrets, bringing them to life in the present, and finds that in the high-stakes world of art, good and evil are often tarred with the same, blood-soaked, brush.

About the Author
Alex Connor was born and educated in England. Having always had an intense interest in the history of art, Alex--who has previously written historical novels and non fiction--turned her attention to writing conspiracy thrillers set in the art world. These books combine all her passions; art history, painting and thriller writing. All have a fascinating historical back story, combined with a hard hitting contemporary thriller--giving an insiderâ??s glimpse into the art world. Taking some of the most famous names in art--Rembrandt, Hogarth, Goya, Titian etc.--Connor exposes little known facts about their lives and secrets, bringing the Old Masters from the past into the complex and, at times, dangerous world of art dealing in the 21st Century. An artist herself, Connor lives in Brighton.
