       Additional Information  
     
      In Rome's crowded Campo dei Fiori, a woman rushes up to two carabinieri, insisting that her 16-year-old daughter has just been abducted. But Detective Nic Costa knows what the two officers don't: that in the local morgue, a forensic pathologist is examining the strange, mummified corpse of girl whose disappearance and death bear haunting similarities....

    Police pathologist Teresa Lupo is Nic's only equal when it comes to breaking the rules to get results. Now, after years of living with the dead, Teresa insists that her superiors move quickly to save a life, for she is certain that the vanished girl is headed for a bizarre, ancient Bacchanalia involving virgins and sacrificial murder. And with the clock ticking down, Nic and Teresa are about to make the most horrifying discovery of all: that an age-old malevolence still endures...and a very modern vengeance has begun.
