Description

Pope Clement XXI is kidnapped, and the Curia, the Swiss Guard and the Italian police are overwhelmed. Thierry Dulac from Interpol is called in, but he too is thwarted at every turn. His investigations hint at secrets held for centuries, revenge and omerta in the arcane, twisting corridors of the Vatican itself. It seems the pontiff too has been less than open. From within the hidden, shadowy world of the Vatican, the bustling Parisian boulevards and the charms of the Florentine piazzas, to the searing bleakness of the Great Sand Sea Desert, Dulac fights to prise open the plot which could cause havoc and disbelief amongst the billions of Catholics across the globe and bring the pontiff back to safety. Nothing is as it seems in this intriguing, exciting novel from a new and talented author.show more
