Of course she already knows more about him than most art historians, thanks to her guardian and mentor, Professor Richard Dylan Edwards. A preeminent Michelangelo scholar—and a member of the mysterious Vittoria Society—Edwards has devoted his life to chasing down lost and stolen works of art and returning them to their rightful owners. Exploring the cobbled streets of the Renaissance city with fellow art student Marco Scudarti, Kate feels the pull of destiny. And when the two uncover a secret chamber in a corridor sealed since the time of the Medicis, they make a stunning discovery: Michelangelo’s Midnight Angels—three small, exquisite sculptures long rumored to exist but never before seen.

From the halls of the Uffizi to the Piazza Santa Croce, across the Ponte Vecchio and under the shadow of the Duomo, Kate and Marco race to preserve and protect not only Michelangelo’s work but also their lives.Midnight Angels is a thrilling, page-turning novel in which Lorenzo Carcaterra evokes an Italian setting so intimate and sensual that it seems to live and breathe along with his characters.

I purchased this novel for 99 cents from bookbub.com, and it was barely worth that price. It's a preposterous tale about rival groups, one evil, one good, trying to get hold of a couple of previously unknown statues by Michelangelo. Nothing rings true-- neither the characters, nor the plot, nor even the Florentine setting-- not to mention the author's lack of knowledge about Michelangelo's style and career.

I love his other books, this one was a disappointment. Maybe because of the genre. Not sure why. His true stories are good

I am learning so much about the art of Florence!
I was soooo looking forward to this book - Florence, my favorite European city -- and art. What a combination! I even BOUGHT the book, and I rarely buy fiction.

Well, I was greatly disappointed. The plot and premise were just plain ridiculous. So many stupid things were done by the characters. Kate was such a lightweight and all of a sudden she was thrust into something for which she was ill-prepared. Murder and mayhem in the streets of Florence. COME ON, now!
