Deep in the Vatican's inner sanctum lies a dark and terrifying secret . . . a secret that has been concealed for decades, and one that its keepers will stop at nothing to protect.
In 1978 Pope John Paul I dies in mysterious circumstances.
His successor, John Paul II, emerges from the conclave unaware that he is in mortal danger.
It is only through the actions of a few loyal operatives that his assassination is prevented.
Thirty years later journalist Sarah Monteiro begins to uncover the sinister machinations of a covert agency, whose web of lies and injustice hides the true power behind the throne.
It would seem that the dark forces are still at large, and Sarah faces a life-or-death struggle in the name of truth and faith.
