Rome. Turmoil in the Eternal City. The Pope has resigned and disappeared without a trace. Nobody even knows whether he is still alive.
At the same time, his closest confidants are being murdered, in the most gruesome ways. As the conclave convenes to elect a successor to the Holy See, Vatican reporter Peter Adam begins to search for the missing Pope. His search leads him to a mysterious underground religious fraternity, which has been working against the Church for centuries. Its members base their beliefs on a medieval prophecy: He who shall succeed the current Pope will call himself Peter II. And he will be the last to hold the See of St. Peter.
Is the apocalypse at hand? And what will it bring? The fulfillment of one of the oldest dreams of mankind, or the end of the world?
Two parallel, almost identical worlds. One corresponds to the year 2011, the other, to 2013. In 2011, the world is on the verge of destruction. The world of 2013, by contrast, is unaware of the apocalypse.
