Customer Review

on 2 January 2014
Like Alex Connor's other art world thrillers, The Caravaggio Conspiracy is a tense and gripping read and keeps you guessing the murderer's identity till the final pages. It reeks with atmosphere: Connor is especially skilled at contrasting present day big-city life, especially the power games and venality of the international art market with its equivalent in 17th and 18th century European cities where great artists like Rembrandt, Goya,and,in this book, Caravaggio,and their masterpieces generated scandal, jealousy, envy, hatred - even murder. In this thriller, full of twists, turns, and nail-biting cliff hangers, Connor takes us back and forth between the sparkle and glamour of Manhattan highlife and the streamlined galleries of London's contemporary art scene to the dusty,clamorous backstreets, shadowy doorways and chaotic artists' workshops of 17th century Naples with its beggars,whores, pickpockets and hired assassins.
