Location: Christ Church Centre

Join us in Renaissance Florence to celebrate the launch of the new historical thriller A Divine Fury - the fourth book in the Cesare Aldo mysteries from CWA Historical Dagger-winning author D. V. Bishop.

A religious serial killer is haunting Florence and only Cesare Aldo can stop them. A Divine Fury is an atmospheric, immersive historical thriller set against the backdrop of the Medici dynasty in 1530s Florence.

About the book

Florence. Autumn, 1539.

Cesare Aldo was once an officer for the city’s most feared criminal court. Following a period of exile, he is back – but demoted to night patrol, when only the drunk and the dangerous roam the streets.

Chasing a suspect in the rain, Aldo discovers a horrifying scene beneath Michelangelo’s statue of David. Lifeless eyes gaze from the face of a man whose body has been posed as if crucified. It’s clear the killer had religious motives.

When more bodies appear, Aldo believes an unholy murderer is stalking the citizens of Florence. Watching. Hunting. Waiting for the perfect moment to strike again . . .

About the author

'Fast becoming a serious rival to C. J. Sansom and S. J. Parris' – Historical Novel Society 

D. V. Bishop is the pseudonym of awardwinning writer David Bishop. His love for the city of Florence and the Renaissance period meant there could be only one setting for his crime fiction. The first book in the Cesare Aldo series, City of Vengeance, won the Pitch Perfect competition at the Bloody Scotland crime writing festival and the NZ Booklovers Award for Best Adult Fiction Book. It was also shortlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize. Bishop was awarded a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship while writing that novel. He teaches creative writing at Edinburgh Napier University.
