The Prisoner of Paradise is a historical fiction thriller about Nick taking a trip to Venice only to collapse after hearing a voice from Tintoretto’s Paradise, a monumental depiction of Heaven. Although his wife asks him to seek help, Nick realizes that his blackout has sent him back to the 16th century, meeting Isabella Scalfini, an aristocrat that he was tasked to seduce but instead fell in love with.
The dynamic of the story then explains how Nick is totally lost in his hallucination only to realize that he has to make a wrong right before he can live the life he is currently in. The thriller story teaches you about Venetian history, art, and its social mores.
