Ever wanted to live in Rome? American David Keller and his expatriate friends did and do. The city of illuminated fountains and church domes offers a challenging language, a unique culture of daily espressos, creamy pastas, and house wines, all intertwined with daring courtships and the aura of ghostly, marble remains monitored by unseen spirits—Trajan, Titus, Bernini, Bramante, and forgotten Republican consuls.

As nocturnal bonds and romances form and explode at secluded Trastevere and Piazza Navona restaurants, David and his pals struggle to resurrect on-job competence during hungover days. Could this explain his boss’s Saturday morning call alerting him to a glitch in paradise?

A simple computer program error. That’s what everyone thought. But David and British friend Philip Chambers, petroleum/software engineers working for Carter Oil Italy, discover it’s not simple–and probably not an error. In Nigeria, where Philip just installed the program, they unearth suspected sabotage, and David starts an affair that fractures distant relationships. Then, after an incriminating discovery, revealing séances, a murder and an exposed secret life, the race for answers flips upside-down, and the hunter becomes the hunted.
