Florence, 1480: Guid'Antonio Vespucci is back in town. One man. One clue. One last chance to save the Republic.
Florentine investigator Guid'Antonio Vespucci returns to Italy from a government mission to find his dreams of peace shattered. Marauding Turks have abducted a young girl and sold her into slavery. Equally disturbing, a revered painting of the Virgin Mary is weeping in Guid'Antonio's family church. Are the tears manmade or a sign of God's displeasure with Guid'Antonio himself?
In a finely wrought story for lovers of medieval and renaissance mysteries everywhere' Guid'Antonio follows a spellbinding trail of clues to uncover the thought-provoking truth about the missing girl and the weeping painting's mystifying tears' all pursued as he comes face to face with his own personal demons.
