An eclectic thriller. Only 3 days to go. Venice floated on a path to destruction. Tourists were being murdered. The Apocalypse is nigh. Behind the walls of Saint Mark's Basilica a Brotherhood of Priests vow to eradicate the mass invasion of Tourists upon their city...



Short Summary

Every day, like the pigeons it’s famous for, Saint Mark’s Square is flocked by tourists, visitors from every corner of the world, all desperate to indulge in the ancient city of Venice’s flamboyant history, with its enchanting maze of cobble-stoned alleyways and romantic winding canals.

Naïve tourists, oblivious that their days were numbered as Venice floated along a path to destruction. The apocalypse was nigh. Only three days to go. Natural forces had been released. Already the weather had changed. The humidity was oppressive. Venomous storms brewed. Dark forces stirred.


Venice. Italy.
