Summary, etc.:
Holy relics are disappearing from sacred spots around the world - and the Vatican will do whatever it takes to stop thieves from their incredible goal: to steal what is left of the scattered and miniscule splinters of the True Cross the Roman Catholic Church has in its possession. Dr. Ottavia Salina, a brilliant and highly esteemed paleographer, toils away at her classified workspace deep within Vatican City, analyzing and restoring some of the world's most valuable religious artifacts, until she is called upon by the highest levels of the Roman Catholic church and charged with a mysterious new assignment: She is to decipher the strange tattoos - seven Greek letters and seven crosses - found on an Ethiopian man's corpse. Found next to what was left of the body were three pieces of wood suspected by Vatican scholars to be actual splinters of the Vera Cruz, the Cross on which Christ was crucified.--
