Nick and Julia O'Connor's dream trip to Venice collapses when a haunting voice reaches out to Nick from Tintoretto's Paradise, the world's largest oil painting.
Though Julia worries her husband suffers from a delusion, Nick is adamant the voice belongs to a woman from the 16th century—his soul mate from a previous life. He discovers a religious order that has developed a method of extracting people's souls, which they imprison in Paradise. Over the centuries, they've judged thousands of souls and sentenced them to eternal purgatory.
As infatuation with the past clouds his commitment to his present-day wife, Nick must right an age-old wrong—destroy the painting and liberate his soul mate. But freeing her would allow all the souls to be reborn.
The order will never let that happen.
A riveting thriller ignites with a time-spanning love story. Perfect for fans of Dan Brown, Diana Gabaldon, Neil Gaiman or David Mitchell.
"...vivid narrative, world-building and edgy suspense is brilliantly showcased in this immersive, time-traveling thriller infused with Gothic horror, supernatural danger and twisty suspense." - Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times best-selling author of the FOGG LAKE series, GUILD BOSS, and many more.
"The city of Venice soaks into your bones in Rob Samborn's The Prisoner of Paradise. As the painting comes alive, so does every word from the page in this gripping and transportive read." - EJ Mellow, bestselling author of SONG OF THE FOREVER RAINS
"Wow! I picked this book because of the reviews, but even they didn't prepare me for the grandeur of the novel. ...an epic well worth reading."
