The Eden Evacuation

When young historian Adam and his daring art conservator girlfriend Gina embark on a Roman holiday, they expect delicious food and captivating sights – not a bewildering mystery. While touring the Vatican Museums, Gina suddenly vanishes. Adam’s desperate search for her uncovers a shadowy art forgery conspiracy greater than either could have imagined.

To unravel the truth and reunite with Gina, Adam plunges headlong into a thrilling quest spanning centuries of history, culture, religion, and current affairs. As the perilous investigation spreads across two continents, Adam and Gina are each forced to confront what really matters most. Will their love unite them despite the dangers they face? Or will the high stakes of the mystery tear their relationship apart?
