It continues with mysterious murders and disappearances of young women in the year 1996. In that same year, the death of Ava M. Stempton, a young doctor and fiancé of the New York billionaire Peter Mc'Ireland, intensified. It follows a financial crime, characterized by the transfer of $ 600,000,000 from a Bank of New York to a tax haven, and by the action of fanatic followers of ancient Greek sects, worshiping their gods with rituals involving human sacrifices . Like pieces of a puzzle, these strange happenings will fit together and weave an intricate plot, forcing Peter out of his conventional world and into another, unknown and uncertain parallel where violence, despair and dread would be the only signs to indicate it's the way to try to unravel its unexpected and mysterious drama.

The Dream of Scipio

By Pears, Iain

Toronto: A.A. Knopf, 2002. . "May well be the best historical mystery ever written,"...so brilliantly constructed, the author himself describes it as "a complexity." ... the centuries are the fifth (the final days of the Roman Empire); the fourteenth (the years of the Black Death); and the twentieth (World War II). The setting for each is the same-Provence-and each has at its heart a love story. The narratives intertwine seamlessly, but what joins them thematically is an ancient text-"The Dream of Scipio"-a work of neo-Platonism that poses timeless philosophical questions. What is the obligation of the individual in a society under siege? What is the role of learning when civilization itself is threatened, whether by acts of man or nature? Does virtue lie more in engagement or in neutrality? "Power without wisdom is tyranny; wisdom without power is pointless," warns one of Pears's characters.Signed on title page.
