Five centuries ago, a Mexican peasant named Juan Diego was visited by the Virgin Mary. As a lasting sign of her presence, Diego’s cloak was marked with the image of the Holy Mother surrounded by roses—and it remains one of the most revered and priceless relics in Mexican religious culture. But now the Virgin’s Cloak has been stolen. Retired CIA agent Vincent Traeger has a history with the Vatican, and is tasked to recover the Cloak. From the border-hunting Minutemen to longtime foes of the Church, the motives are as varied as the suspects. But Traeger soon realizes that the truth is hidden within a conspiracy that could bring a country—and a faith—to its knees.
