Sandra Vega, a forensic analyst with the Roman police department, mourns deeply for a marriage that ended too soon. A few months ago, in the dead of night, her husband, an up-and-coming journalist, plunged to his death at the top of a high-rise construction site. The police ruled it an accident. Sandra is convinced it was anything but.
Launching her own inquiries, Sandra finds herself on a dangerous trail, working the same case that she is convinced led to her husband's murder - an investigation which is deeply entwined with a series of disappearances that has swept the city, and brings Sandra ever closer to a centuries-old secret society that will do anything to stay in the shadows.

The Catholic religion and traditions.

Not one particular moment - I enjoyed the entire book.
Any additional comments?
This story is not well written. It is told, not shown. About an hour from the end you learn who’s killing the lost girls of Rome and one other mystery is solved. Then begins a lot of flashbacks to new characters and the story becomes a jumbled mess. The end, which is supposed to be surprising, can be seen coming from about an hour out. This author should be barred from writing any more novels.
