The Wolves of St. Peter’s by Gina Buonaguro and Janice Kirk


Forced to work as a humble servant to artist Michelangelo, Francesco prefers the company of other, more amenable artists as well as prostitutes in a nearby brothel. When one of the girls drowns, Francesco finds himself entangled in the mystery of what happened and caught up in the corruption invading Rome. A thrilling tale of beauty and ugliness in Renaissance Italy.

The Wolves of St. Peter’s, Gina Buonaguro and Janice Kirk, $20.
