about

The Caravaggio Contract is based on a real-life mystery-the missing paintings of the great Baroque artist Caravaggio. The story begins in 1985 when, after 400 years, one of Caravaggio's famed missing paintings turns up in a warehouse owned by Sergio Celesti, a Roman antique dealer. How Sergio obtains the painting, and where it disappears for a second time, is at the heart of the mystery. Set against the beautifully rendered Italian cities of Naples and Rome, Sergio's widow, Fiona, searches for the painting which unveils a story of betrayal as she stays one step ahead of the sinister Camorra and the Knights of Malta. Her husband's murder exposes the dark side of Italian life as Fiona is forced to reconcile her past choices with the life she's determined to have as an artist.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like a bad pulp novel The description makes this sound like a novel based on well-researched historical events like Peter Robb's M. It is more like a bad historical romance. The main character is described as a beauty with talent and character, but she behaves like a clueless, immature child. Some of the main plot points make no sense, such as the Caravaggio painting, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, left uninsured and unattended. The story is poorly written, full of description that is contradicted by the plot or characters' behaviour. What a waste of time and money!
