Stefania Mattana the author of several Chase Williams detective books has turned her writing talents to historical fiction in her latest work. The Bloody Wedding tells the story of Raphael’s painting “The Entombment.” What is particularly interesting in this story is that the narrator is the painting. The interactions between Raphael and Atalanta come to life by the only witness to the events and the reader gains an understanding of The Bloody Wedding which took place in Perugia in 1500 and ended in murder. Mattana shows her writing skills extend beyond cozy mysteries as she tackles real history in a narrative form. Very well done.
