The Illuminati - they have always been with us, working behind the scenes, present at every turning point in our history, fighting against those who would destroy the future of civilization. Return now to one such turning point, to eighteenth-century Naples, where a cruel murder is about to embroil young aristocrat and composer Sigismundo Celine in the secret struggle among the Illuminati, the assassins of the Rossi brigade, the agents of the M.A.F.I.A., and the seemingly unstoppable Inquisition. Sigismundo will come to know such unique people as Mozart, Casanova, and Dr. Frankenstein as the forces of light and darkness seek to claim him for their own. For all are certain that he is the long-awaited one whose powers - can he but master them - will remold the destiny of the entire world...
