Lying by the pool under a clear Tuscan sky, LORENZO ROSSI, the former head of the Vatican police, receives a surprise visit from his ex-fiancée, CIA Agent, CATHY DOHERTY. Cathy is concerned about Rossi’s safety. Three nights ago, a Russian GRU agent, ELENA TRUSOVA, was critically injured when her car left a remote road leading to Rossi’s family olive farm in Siena, Italy.
Rossi ensures Cathy the proximity of the accident is pure coincidence, but agrees to investigate after Cathy revealed Trusova was a double agent working for the CIA and on her way to see him. For what purpose, she can only speculate. But one thing was for sure: his life was in danger.
With the help of Trusova’s friends and lovers, Rossi and Cathy piece together a gold mine of intelligence that, if authentic, points to another right-wing Conspiracy. One that Rossi is reluctant to involve himself, but has no choice.
As dead bodies pile up around them, Rossi and Cathy couldn’t help but wonder why they were still alive. They concluded the CIA or other state actors were using them to hunt down a piece of red-hot evidence that, if made public, would bring down the US President and perhaps prevent nuclear Armageddon.
