Pg. 69: Ruth Brandon's "Caravaggio's Angel"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Caravaggio's Angel by Ruth Brandon.

About Caravaggio's Angel, from the publisher:
Dr Reggie Lee, new at London’s National Gallery, is planning a small exhibition of three almost identical Caravaggio paintings when she discovers a fourth. One must be a forgery. That discovery detonates multiple murders.
Caravaggio's Angel is the first of a series featuring the canny and ambitious heroine, Reggie Lee.

Ruth Brandon is a historian, biographer and novelist. Her other book released this year is Other People's Daughters (in America, Governess, the Lives and Times of the Real Jane Eyres), which is about governesses, a social history told through seven short lives.
