Superintendent Laurenti's fourth case leads him once again back into Trieste's troubled political past. This time not only small-time crooks but Yugoslavian financiers and his own colleagues from the Italian Secret Service interfere with Laure

When the man is identified it turns out that he has had several dates with Mia, a young Australian. Mia remains in Italy to settle an estate that includes a warehouse. And she is not the only one startled to find the warehouse is filled, from floor to ceiling, with old weapons. The former owner, Diego de Henriquez, an eccentric nobleman, died many years ago under mysterious circumstances. Investigations lead to a conspiracy between the Maltese Order and the Mafia.

But the events leading to an explosive ending leave little room for private affairs…
