God is a Girl: Blue Magic Woman
by James van Loon & Paola Bortolotti
This Nordic Noir novel is about a young artist who joins an Alpine Abbey to investigate the unexplained death of his uncle, a Benedictine monk. Beneath the medieval walls, he discovers a labyrinth of tunnels – and a secret passageway to a world of eroticism and madness. After a beautiful young postulate is found dead in the monastery, Michael goes on the run like Caravaggio, a bad tempered artist.
