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 Nye and a sense of her misplaced faith.
Meanwhile, in a crypt beneath the wintry stones of Venice, Matthew Rennie is cleaning the grime from a medieval fresco. Better here than above ground, where Nye holds sway, masked figures shadow him and people like Eva Hicks throw things into question.
Eva's Angel is a gripping, beautifully observed novel by Garry Disher, author of the award-winning, bestselling The Divine Wind.
