Show synopsis The death of Father Vivaldi, known as the Red Priest because of his devotion to the poor and destitute, seemed like the beginning. In fact, it was just another link in a vast conspiracy that powerful, unseen forces will go to any lengths to conceal. Rome foreign correspondent Andy Chapman, investigating the brutal killing, discovers evidence that implicates high-ranking members of the church. He turns his information over to the investigating magistrate, beautiful Elena Fiorini, and together they begin a hunt for the killers. They find themselves up against the might of the Catholic Church and a sinister network of neofascist fanatics. Their quest leads them to the very heart of the Vatican, and back to the last days of Mussolini's dictatorship, when people changed their identities but not their allegiances. -- A pulsating thriller of stunning plausibility, heralding the arrival of an exciting new voice to the genre. -- A page-turner that artfully mixes contemporary politics and religion.
