In the early hours of a sultry summer evening, a government car comes under fire along the narrow Via delle Quattro Fontane. When the shots die away, one person lies dead and anotherÃ¢ÂÂMinistry of Interior official Giovanni BatistiÃ¢ÂÂhas been abducted.
The terrible fate of the missing bureaucrat is soon revealedÃ¢ÂÂleaving all of Italy in shock. Who would do such a thing? And why? All signs point to a mysterious terrorist group that calls itself the Blue Demon, an organization whose last campaign of violence ended two decades ago.
For Detective Nic Costa, solving this case is an all-consuming obsession. But as he and his team begin their investigation, they find themselves reduced to expensive bodyguardsÃ¢ÂÂand their hands tied with red tapeÃ¢ÂÂuntil tragedy strikes and claims one of their own.

As one terror attack after another sends the Eternal City spiraling into panic, Nic Costa vows that nothing will stop him from catching a vengeful madman bent on tearing apart his city, its people, and its very history.
