It is the third thrilled starring the laic-consecrated Sangermano inspector, the policeman who chases serial killers for work and, in private life, helps former drug addicts and is very active in the life of his Roman parish. A beautiful Chinese girl is killed in the gardens of Piazza Vittorio, in Rome. The killer shot her with a sniper rifle from one of the buildings surrounding the ancient square. The murder closely resembles another one, which took place in Largo Tel Aviv, Milan, about three months earlier. The case is entrusted to Uocs, the team specialized in serial crimes and the inspector Marcello Sangermano begins the investigation, assisted by his usual collaborators Silvia Fedele and Gigi Placidi. There are various tracks to follow in search of this new mysterious serial killer and some of these lead up to the famous Palazzo del freddo in via Principe Eugenio, the famous and ancient Roman ice cream parlor Fassi. The investigations go on in Milan at same time and the inspector Sangermano, finally, will also have to go to Shanghai, China, to verify in person any involvement of the bosses of the Triad. But it is precisely in Rome that perhaps the truth is hidden, especially in that most secret part of the city that still seems to bring the echo of a past steeped in perfidious alchemy and dark esotericism.

It is a torrid summer morning when the corpse of a young seminarian is found in the Pontifical Seminary in Rome. Next to the body a pair of bloody shears and a cut off finger. The Uocs are called to investigate the case, the police unit specialized on serial crimes, led by the inspector Marcello Sangermano, a policeman with a tender but determined heart. At the same time, on the other side of the Tiber, inside the Vatican, a growing fear that a scandal may explode, especially in a particular moment like this, which sees the new pontiff engaged in a work of rehabilitation of ecclesiastical institutions. Helped by his collaborators - the psychologist Silvia Fedele, the head of the scientific department Gizzi, the deputy inspector Placidi - Sangermano discovers that similar murders have been done in the past. But the search for truth is immediately complicated and fraught with obstacles, mainly due to the reticence of those who know and the continuous misdirections. Sangermano, thus, moving between the Urbe, the Roman coast, the Umbrian countryside, the Tuscia and Sardinia, pursues the threads of a plot with dark implications and terrible implications, which will lead him to the discovery a history of blood and passion that no one would have ever wanted to bring to the light.

A cold and rainy Roman Christmas is around the corner, but for the UOCS (Serial Crimes Unit) inspector Marcello Sangermano who in his private life dedicates himself to rehabilitation of young ex-drug addicts, there could be no worse of an ending of the year for in Rome lurks a sadistic and merciless murderer. His victims are harmless elderly who he mercilessly slaughters and cuts into pieces. Despite a frantic investigation stemming from public fear and pressure from the authorities to quickly solve the case, the investigation so far has produced nothing. Even though Sangermano is being helped by fellow officers in the Serial Crimes Unit: the Chief of Forensics Sandro Gizzi, a blonde Deputy Inspector Silvia Fedele, and the hefty Gigi Placidi, for the first time in his illustrious career, Marcello is really stuck and faces the prospect of a disastrous failure. There are many suspects, among whom include an obese pharmacist and cartoonist Nanni Ciocci, who happens to be the son of one of the elderly murdered, but nothing concrete has panned out yet. To save the day however, by chance, comes a clue that steers him onto the right track, which takes him through an intersection where a troubled past meets a shabby run down place where strange characters lurk about who in the end will help him along that very path which will finally reveal an unpredictable truth..
