"A powerful and discomforting story of one man's obsession and its consequences. A thriller with real momentum and atmospheric force."

Synopsis

Saving Caravaggio by Neil Griffiths

Under a searing Calabrian sky, detective Daniel Wright is shown the world's most famous stolen painting - Caravaggio's Nativity. As a Caravaggio lover and expert in art recovery, he is determined to rescue it from the mafia bosses who use it as payment for drug deals and assassinations. Risking his marriage, his career and his life, Daniel defies his superiors and goes beyond the law with the help of Uffizi Gallery curator Francesca Natali in a desperate bid to save the Caravaggio before it is lost forever. But will he become the hero of the art establishment, or has he dangerously underestimated its mafia underworld?

Saving Caravaggio is a thrilling story of intrigue and personal crusades, that combines the dark atmosphere of Naples with a determined pursuit of passion.
