What is the most terrible secret a father could hide from his daughter?
Buenos Aires, 1976. The generals take control and for rich Jewish financiers like Reuben Altman the world is coming to an end, just as it should be beginning. He has a beautiful wife who has just given him two twin baby daughters, Diana and Simone.
But the night the death squads come to his apartment, he is not there, he is with his mistress. It is a sin he will pay for, over and over again.
The man who tortures and murders his wife also takes one of his baby daughters as his own. But what happened to Diana?
Many years later, after the junta are overthrown, Reuben Altman returns to Argentine to try and unravel the secrets.
A deeply religious country with a dark and violent past, Argentine has always treated its generals with as much reverence as its priests. So it does not surprise him when his search leads him to Rome and the headquarters of the Cathholic Church. In uncovering the truth he threatens men with powerful links to the international arms business and the Vatican bank itself.
But Reuben is a man looking for redemption and will stop at nothing to bring his daughters back together and uncover the most terrible secret any father can ever keep.
