For Luke Signorelli, who shares his name and appearance with a famous Italian painter, it is a question of whether life imitates art or the other way around.When an image of Christ winks at a youthful Luke, the youngster knows then that his life is to be less than ordinary. Why has he been chosen... and is it actually Christ who is guiding his life or someone more sinister? As Luke is driven to commit more and more serious crimes, his world narrows and he sees only one everlasting solution, but will his otherworldly Mentor allow an escape?In What's in a Name, author Christopher Arthur explores the nature of duality in art, in humanity and in religion. A fascinating, yet horrifying, look at the extent passions can drive our actions and life.

I studied archaeology and anthropology at Cambridge University, back in the ’60s, before doing fieldwork in Cyrenaica, when I traced the main water supply of ancient Ptolemais from its source to the city’s cisterns. I followed this up as a member of a field survey of sites in Fezzan and later I worked as a site supervisor for several seasons on a Byzantine excavation in Istanbul. I have also travelled in Central America, Peru, Turkey, North and East Africa, Iran, Eastern and Central Europe, Malaysia, Italy, France, Russia and Ukraine. In the course of a career, largely spent teaching, I have also written and produced a considerable number of plays.
