Una serie de asesinatos en las habitaciones del Vaticano, sin aparente vinculacion, oculta sus razones en un lejano pasado. Las respuestas podrian esconderse en las intrigas palaciegas de 1929, cuando crecio el poder de la Santa Sede a la sombra de Mussolini y Hitler, y en las extranas circunstancias del final de Pio XI y su sucesion por Pio XII. Las muertes acontecen a gran velocidad mientras el padre Gonzaga, experimentado detective, llega desde Oriente Proximo para investigar los crimenes; lo acompana Shoval, una enigmatica forense israeli. Desde Amman hasta el centro de Roma hay un camino mas largo que el que se pueda sospechar. Los protagonistas estan atrapados en un juego de sombras donde nada es lo que aparenta: ni el pasado, ni el presente. Una novela trepidante que bucea en la historia oculta del Vaticano. Description in English: A series of murders in the Vatican's rooms with no apparent link, hide their motifs in the distant past. Answers could be hiding in the palace intrigues of 1929, when the power of the Holy See increased in the shadow of Mussolini and Hitler, and the strange circumstances of the end of Pius XI and his succession by Pius XII. Deaths occur at high speed while Father Gonzaga, an experienced detective, comes from the Middle East to investigate the crimes; he is accompanied by Shoval, an enigmatic Israeli forensic. From Amman to the center of Rome there is a longer path than plausibly suspected. The protagonists are caught in a game of shadows where nothing is what it seems: neither the past nor the present. A fast-paced novel that delves into the hidden history of the Vatican.
