For the first time in decades the Eternal City is paralysed by a
blizzard. And a gruesome discovery is made in the pantheon _
one of Rome's most ancient and revered architectural treasures.
Covered by soft snow is the body of a woman - her back horribly
mutilated . . , Before Nic costa and Gianni peroni of the Questura
can begin a formal investigation, the US Embassy has brought in
its own people, FBI agents who want the case closed down is
quickly and discreetly as possible.
But Costa is determined to find out why the enquiry is so
sensitive - and as the FBI grudgingly admits that this corpse is
not the first, the mutilations of the woman’s body point to
Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man - and to a conspiracy so
sinister and buried so deep that only, two people know it’s true,
"[featuring] bits of real antiquity that are better than any of the
fake mumbo-jumbo in The Da Vinci Code . .. fascinating'
