But before long tragedy will strike Nic far closer to home. The main suspect remains untouchable, protected in his grand palazzo by a fleet of lawyers and a sinister cult known as the Ekstasists. The mystery of the cult will take Costa right back to Caravaggio himself and the reasons he had to flee Rome all those centuries before . . .
