Summary
When the painter Botticelli doesn't pay Luciana Vetra for her work as one of his models, she steals an unfinished painting. After people around her start dying--murdered by someone who wants the painting and its secrets back--Luciana goes on the run, looking for answers
Summary
The gorgeous Luciana Vetra, part-time model and full-time prostitute, has a request from one of her most exalted clients to pose for a painter friend, to be the central figure of Flora in Botticelli's masterpiece 'Primavera'. But when the artist dismisses her without payment, Luciana impulsively steals an unfinished version of the painting - only to find that friends and clients are slaughtered around her in an attempt to get it back. So Luciana turns to the one man who has never desired her beauty, novice monk Brother Guido Della Torre, to discover what could be so valuable about the painting. Fleeing Florence together, Luciana and Guido race through the seven cities of Renaissance Italy pursued by ruthless enemies who are determined to keep them from decoding the painting's secrets.
