A dark figure. A secret code. A battle between good and evil…

The code lies in the hidden recesses of Lorenzo Aragona’s memory. The alchemist has always known it, but, until he crosses paths with a beautiful but brutal Russian spy, he does not realise its significance.

The lives of the Pope, his dying wife and all of mankind are at stake and only Lorenzo has the power to save them…
