Anselmo, once known as Rome’s go-to man for unsolvable probems (see the two previous volumes in this trilogy: Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia and Anselmo e la moglie spagnola), has made a new life with his twin brother Paolo in Belgium, far to the north of the intrigues and dangers of the Papal court.

Life is good. Both Anselmo and Paolo are successful men. But they can’t help following the news and gossip from Rome: Cesare Borgia has had notable military success at the head of the French armies so it now seems that his father, Pope Alessandro VI, is in an unassailable position of power and wealth.

Then one day a letter arrives: Cesare’s syphilis has reoccurred and he once more needs Anselmo’s help.

Paolo, Anselmo’s identical twin, is concerned. But then an idea occurs – accompanying his brother to Rome would be an unmissable chance to see court life at first hand!

Volume 1 of the Anselmo trilogy is ‘Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia‘, Volume 2 is Anselmo e la moglie spagnola). Volume 3 is Anselmo e l’avvelenamento del Papa.
