Truly, the Capo felt himself as a Roman god and his wife felt herself to be a Roman goddess. They powered up the Tiber into Roma on their grand yacht.For many years the Carabinieri Direttore had suspected them to be killers and thieves but had little proof and they had the protection of the Judiciary. Then they arrived on their yacht and there was gossip and so the Direttore set into motion a personal plan to take these vile creatures. He had to do this with friends and through favors.This should not be even remotely possible because the Capo owned too many in the Judiciary and in the Ministry. He was untouchable, this Roman god and goddess.Really?In days we will see if those who felt they were becoming gods were in fact.This art theft adventure is one in a continuing series featuring a recurring cast of Carabinieri inspectors, museo directors, and the Fantastico! sights and sounds of Florence and Rome.Inventive thieves and their despicable clients are determined to steal for themselves the treasures of all Italia. At times they only fail because of the intuition of the Florence Carabinieri Direttrice and her Ispettore sister.In another adventure- "Back to Roma"- two bastard thieves are removing and auctioning off marble pieces- noses, ears, hands, heads- from ancient marble statures.

And, because of a storm that is ravaging Roma, surely they will be successful. Except- and thank God for this!- there is a Carabinieri art theft prevention and recovery team suddenly alert.
