Over the years he has become obsessed with the idea that one powerful man, a Godfather figure, is behind all the violence. And when a minor member of the Red Brigades decides to talk bardi believes his chance has come to uncover the truth.The tortuous quest for answers takes him from the prison cells of terrorists to the highest echelons of the Military Secret Service and the Vatican City and into deadly danger...
