Performing autopsies when not a doctor was illegal and punishable by death. Who would take that risk for him? With little convincing, Prior Bichiellini and Arrigo the Medico dared to allow him to sneak into the Santo Spirito morgue each night. Michelangelo was shocked when he began to recognize many of the corpses who, it appeared, had been murdered-including his beloved best friend, Catarina.
Was there a connection between these deaths? Did Savonarola have something to do with them? The Medici? Was Prior Bichiellini and Arrigo the Medico responsible? Did he dare risk his own life and try to solve the murders? Or, should he stick to what he knows best, which is creating art? Most know Michelangelo as the creator of David and the painter of the Sistine Chapel.
In Michelangelo & the Morgue, a historical fantasy novella that takes place in the fifteenth century, Michelangelo defies religious and political powers in order to find who is murdering the artists of Florence, learning along the way that the person responsible might just be himself.

Historical Short Stories ... not my cup of tea
Any additional comments?
I received this book for free in exchange for a honest review.
This book was very difficult to follow. Historical fiction isnt usually my cup of tea, but since I love Michelangelo I thought I would give it a whirl. The first story I enjoyed. The second story with autopsies lost me. The could not engage for the rest of the stories.
