The Third Secret of our Lady of Fatima is removed illegally from the Vatican vaults and replaced with a bible scripture in 1941. That scripture is then shipped out with a fortune in Vatican gold, which goes missing in the war-torn Sahara desert. Twenty years after the war, the whereabouts of the gold comes to light.

Now there is set in motion a chain of violent events that involve the Italian Mafia, an ex British Army captain and the French Foreign Legion. Can the Roman Catholic Church avoid being brought into disrepute?
