Aided merely by means of a gorgeous younger Florentine with a conspirator's brain and darkish secrets and techniques, Franco is quickly stuck up in a life-and-death fight from which there's no break out. Relentlessly pursued through lethal assassins and demons of his personal, finally he needs to confront-and defeat-an evil more than whatever conjured in his worst nightmares.
