SecretumBook - 2009
"July, 1700, Rome. Atto Melani mingles with other high-ranking guests at the villa of Cardinal Spada. Despite being there to celebrate the Cardinal’s nephew’s wedding, the main topic of conversation is the grave illness of the Pope and the approaching demise of Charles II. Melani, keen to see the French king ascend the Spanish throne, sets in motion a grandiose conspiracy that will plunge him into a world of secret languages, religious sects, forged Royal wills and Europe into war." --Publisher.
