Daily Mail: Light and Shade in My ‘Sensitive’ Caravaggio Novel

A great review by Kathy Stevenson in The Daily Mail of my new novel A NAME IN BLOOD: “The well-known image of Caravaggio is of a great artist but a deeply flawed man, a profligate and uncouth murderer. Matt Rees’s novel adds the light and shade that were so characteristic of his work to the man…By using various paintings to illustrate the different phases of Carvaggio’s life and death, Rees illuminates with sensitivity the hitherto dark portrait of one of the world’s most influential artists.”
