Following his exemplary execution of his latest mission, Vince, a new recruit to the Vatican's protection and intelligence service, is invited to join the top secret and highly selective division, the "Keepers." There are only twelve agents throughout the whole world at any one time. They don't know each other. They can never meet. Trias, the third Keeper, has just been killed. Vince is to take his place.
His first mission is to accompany two prelates to the World Economic Forum in Davos, that brings together the world's most influential stock market players. Right in the middle of dinner on the opening night, they get the news: An Iranian factory powered by nuclear energy has been bombed. Iran retaliated immediately, targeting the United States and Great Britain. The world is fast on its way to a third World War. All the main news channels are broadcasting images of absolute carnage.
Vince looks on as things go from bad to worse. He can't help feeling that there's more to it than first meets the eye... but what?
