A gripping, beautifully observed novel by the author of the award-winning, bestselling, THE DIVINE WIND.
Eva Hicks has come to Italy for love and art. What she finds in the shifting light of Tuscany are gunshots along the terraced hillsides, the enigmatic painter Nye and a sense of her own misplaced faith.
Another student, Matt, is deeply suspicious of their mentor. Is Nye inappropriately involved with one of his students, and connected with the murders of tourists in the region? As Matt and Eva's relationship develops, they decide to find the truth, and discover much more than they bargained for.
'Tantalising... Part thriller, part rite of passage, part evocative journey'
