Nick and Julia O'Connor's trip to Venice takes a dark turn when a voice calls out from Tintoretto's Paradise, a colossal painting that hides a sinister purpose.
Plunged into a labyrinth of intrigue and peril, Nick discovers an ancient religious order that wields the power to imprison souls within the artwork. For centuries, this order has doomed countless people to eternal purgatory.
Bound by an inexplicable connection to a woman from the past, Nick becomes consumed with a quest for justice. His mission: defeat the order, obliterate the priceless masterpiece, and liberate the wrongly imprisoned.
But the order controls more than the painting, with an ironclad grip on the city and secrets that could change the world—secrets they'll do anything to protect.
The lines between past and present blur, love clashes with duty, and the fate of souls hangs in precarious balance in this riveting dual-timeline thriller perfect for fans of Dan Brown, Daniel Silva, Diana Gabaldon, or James Rollins.
"...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."
