Publisher's Summary

A magnificent old church faces demolition until a handful of supporters rally to save the landmark. But soon the church's defenders begin to die. Accidents or murder? The task of unraveling the mystery falls to the Vatican's handsome and sophisticated Father Lorenzo Quart. But first he must track down the identity of a savvy computer hacker known only as Vespers, and find a way to resist the considerable charms of a stunning Spanish beauty bent on seduction.
