Retired CIA operative Vincent Traeger spent years working undercover in Rome. Now he is going back to solve a mystery. The Vatican’s Secretary of State has been brutally murdered along with a prefect of the Vatican Library. Traeger suspects that a Cold War adversary may be involved. But there is more than deadly politics at work. The answers can only be found within the story of the Lady of Fatima: the image of the Blessed Mary who appeared to three peasant children in 1917—and predicted a pope’s assassination. Fighting an unseen enemy in a world of religious fervor, deception, and blood, and shadowed by a powerful billionaire whose devotion to God may mask the devil’s work, Traeger must navigate a treacherous maze through history, faith, and his own past if he is ever to discover the astonishing truth.
