Imagine a medieval castle run by the Benedictines, with cellarists, herbalists, gardeners, young novices. One after the other half a dozen monks are found murdered in the most bizarre of ways. A learned Franciscan who is sent to solve the mystery finds himself involved in the frightening events, a sleuth's pursuit of the truth behind the mystery also involves the pursuit of meaning in words, symbols, ideas, every conceivable sing the visible universe contains. Umberto has written his first novel and it has become a literary event.
