Sign Of The Cross

20121114-153007.jpgA degree of calm has returned to Spike Sanguinetti’s life in Gibraltar, until he receives the shocking news that his Maltese uncle and aunt are dead, a domestic dispute having escalated into a blood-soaked murder-suicide.

Accompanied by his ageing father, Spike crosses the Mediterranean to Malta for the funerals. As a lawyer, it falls to Spike to act as executor of the wills. The more he looks into his relatives’ deaths, however, the more he is faced by a troubling question: what could have prompted a mild-mannered art historian to stab his wife to death, then turn the knife upon himself?

After reuniting with an ex-girlfriend, Zahra, now working in Malta as a translator, Spike embarks on a dangerous trail which leads all the way from the island’s squalid immigrant tent camps to the ornate palazzos of the legendary Knights of St John. It seems that in Malta, one of the oldest Christian nations in the world, self-interest can masquerade as charity, and what first appears to be worthless can prove valuable beyond price.
