We know they will succeed. Lists with This Book. I can’t explain my lack assensi enthusiasm towards this book. There’s a nun working in the Vatican archives and there’s a Swiss Guard and a Coptic polyglot archaeologist, and the three of them are tasked with the investigation into a dead body found decorated with strange symbols and crosses.
