When Control of the Vatican Is At Stake, Money Talks and Nobody Plays Fair
The brutal murder of a young Jesuit priest and church financier thrusts investigator Michael Visconte into a web of Vatican conspiracy and intrigue -- with deadly consequences.
Visconte discovers the crime is tied to his personal complicated past and to his ongoing investigation into the money laundering operations of the Archangeli, a secret society inside the Vatican.
His lucky break--one that should provide critical evidence--blurs the line between good and evil and not only endangers the lives of Michael and the Jesuits, but also imperils the lives of his wife and children.
Tavakoli weaves a rousing tale of murder, embezzlement, blackmail, conspiracies, psychological manipulation, and ultimate power.A whodunnit that keeps you guessing until the end.
