A desperate plea from the Vatican. A kidnapped chef. An ambitious mob boss. One perilous game.

When Professor Alexandra Delacroix is called in to find a cure for the dying pope, she follows clues left by her mentor and friend, the late Professor K, which lead her on a breathtaking search through historical secrets, some of them deadly.

Her old friend Jack Rogan must step in to assist while also searching for kidnapped Top Chef Europe winner Lorenza da Baggio.

He joins forces with his young friend and gifted psychic, Tristan, a dedicated mafia hunting prosecutor, a fearless young police officer, and an enigmatic Egyptian detective on a perilous hunt for a notorious IS terrorist.

Together, they stand off with the head of a powerful Mafia family in Florence and uncover a network of corruption and heinous crimes reaching to the very top.

Will Rogan and his friends succeed in finding Lorenza and curing the pope, or will the dark forces swirling around them prevail in their sinister plots?

My Take on the Book:

There’s two or three story-lines going on in this book; and there’s quite a bit of scene setting in the beginning, which leads to the book being a little bit more slower paced. Some of the story-lines progress faster than others. For those that prefer faster paced books that don’t have a lot of scene setting, this might not be the book for you. I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:

In comparison to ‘The Kimberly Secret’, which is another book by this author that I read recently – I prefer this one; since there’s more room to expand on things as well as for a story to develop. With the former book, there wasn’t too much room to move around in terms of the story-line and for things to develop properly. One thing I will say is that this author is quickly becoming a favourite of mine.
