After escaping Venice with their lives, Nick & Julia O’Connor have one goal: return home so they can end their nightmare vacation. But before they reach the American consulate, they’re captured by Interpol and returned to Venice.
Behind Nick’s detention is Salvatore della Porta, the corrupt head of an ancient, enigmatic order that controls Paradise, Tintoretto’s Renaissance masterpiece that’s also a purgatory for thousands of souls—including Nick’s soul mate from the 16th century.
Della Porta believes Nick’s previous life knows the location of a book lost to the ages. This mysterious manuscript will bring him world-changing power—or topple the order.
As Nick’s link to the past consumes him, it’s up to Julia to save her husband and crush della Porta. But with friends in short supply, she must enlist Carlo Zuccaro, unaware the young artist is the order’s new Painter and warden of the damned.
"From 16th century Venice to modern Madrid, Painter of the Damned splashes bright history, dark arts, crimson action, and shape-shifting twists onto an epic canvas to create a genre-bending masterwork."
- David L. Robbins, New York Times bestselling author of THE DEVIL'S WATERS and ISAAC'S BEACON
"In this soulful sequel, hop into a Venetian gondola for the ride of your past life. Death stalks the shadows of every arched footbridge. Expect only the unexpected."
- Avanti Centrae, award-winning author of the international bestselling VANOPS thriller series
"Cleverly using time itself as a central theme, Painter of the Damned is an uncommonly intelligent, shrewd and deftly paced thriller, crafted with such lush language and provocative narrative that it kept me turning pages throughout the long nights."
- Gary McAvoy, bestselling author of THE MAGDALENE CHRONICLES and THE AVIGNON AFFAIR
