Description

In the vaults of the Vatican City, buried between obscure codices in her office in the Secret Archive, Sister Ottavia Salina, a paleographer of international prestige, receives a commission to decipher the strange tattoos found on the body of a dead Ethiopian: seven Greek letters and seven crosses. Next to the body, three apparently worthless pieces of wood were discovered. Scholars suspect that these pieces of wood may be from the Vera Cruz -the true cross of Christ-. Accompanied by Professor Boswell, an archaeologist from Alexandria, and by the Captain of the Swiss Guards of the Vatican, Kaspar Glauser-Ro'st, the protagonist begins an investigation to uncover the mysterious forces behind the disappearances of holy objects from churches around the world and sets of on an enigmatic adventure to uncover seven answers based on the seven capital sins, in which Dante and his vision of Purgatory in the Divine Comedy seems to have the key. The search for these answers takes them to seven cities -from Rome to Antioch, passing through Ravenna, Athens, Jerusalem, Constantinople and Alexandria- on a risky and electrifying journey to discover the identity of the last Cato.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
