Interesting story but the plot twists were hard to follow. Finn's character believable until she learns of her father's murder and showed no reaction. Strange. Lots of loose ends not explained. ( )

First words
Maggiore Tiberio Bertoglio, wearing the uniform of one of the Mussolini Black Brigades - complete with ebony shoulder boards, bloodred-and-silver double-M collar tabs and a silver-and-black skull-and-crossbones insignia on the forepeak of his regulation bustina - sat in the backseat of the dusty Lancia staff car, arms crossed over his chest Il Duce-style, not feeling half as grand as he looked.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451411862, Mass Market Paperback)

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.
