Chaos is about to descend on the Eternal City.
The River Tiber will run with blood. A darkness will consume the sun.
And that is just the beginning.
An ancient stone bearing seven predictions is unearthed in a dig. Then, when gunshots are fired by the river, Akkadian language specialist Angelina Calla and Vatican expert Ben Verdyx are stunned to realise they are the targets.
The tablet connects them: they are the only people in Rome who can decipher it. But can these prophecies be real? And why does someone want Ben and Angelina dead? Now they must put aside their differences to unravel the terrifying truth before their time runs out.
