Audere Semper by Elisa Flavi
It is a bright October day. And Rome, the eternal city, wakes up. The bars and stores open for business, the tourists gather at the museums and the sounds of traffic blankets the streets. For Elisa, this seems like another typical day. First, she attends her university journalism class, grabs a quick chat with friends, and then races off for her work at a small local newspaper, the Eco di Roma. Unfortunately, her time there is split between boring odd jobs and reprimands from her boss. None su of this suits the ambitious young intern, who yearns for a real assignment and the chance for "the story" that will make her name as a reporter. But this October day will be anything but typical for Elisa. Her adventure begins with what she thinks is nothing more than a way to pass time at the newspaper. A mysterious coded message turns up and Elisa decides to try her skills at deciphering its meaning. What she uncovers is just the first piece of a deeper intrigue. As she follows its trail, Elisa will have to choose between the scoop of a lifetime and her own ethics. And she will find herself trapped in a series of tangled events deep in the heart of Rome. For this ancient city, known for its culture and art, also has a history of dark secrets and esoteric movements.
To survive these challenges, instinct and skills will not be enough. Elisa will have to learn to face her fears, belonging to a past that was perhaps better left alone...
