Nico Argenti returns from the university with a law degree. He is eager to begin his career, but instead finds his city of Florence engulfed in turmoil. Power hungry aristocrats see the death of Cosimo de Medici as the perfect opportunity to seize control of the Republic. The Florentine Chancellor, who is familiar with Nico’s abilities, recruits Nico to help learn details of the conspiracy before it can destabilize the government. Nico’s investigation reveals that the conspirators have hired an assassin to implement their plan. Nico must discover the assassin’s intended victim and then find a way to thwart the assassin before it is too late.
To unravel the clues, Nico is aided by cousin Donato, owner of Florence’s finest restaurant, childhood friend artist Sandro Botticelli, and Bianca, a recent acquaintance who soon becomes a special lady to him.
