Amid the turbulent rise of Prussian aggression under Otto von Bismarck, the famous Hungarian composer Franz Liszt is compelled to use his "Dante Symphony" to relay encrypted messages to aid Napoleon III of France and Pope Pius IX. His secret spy team, codenamed the Altar Eagles, includes some of his famous artistic friends and piano students. One pupil happens to be the young firebrand, Angelo Di Purezza, who opts never to tell his son, Angelo Jr., of his covert life.
The mysterious storyline of murder and intrigue carries over to Angelo Junior's generation when he realizes that his father's death was not by natural causes. During his quest, Angelo Jr. finds himself ensnared in a string of unexpected adventures—some bone-chilling, some miraculous, and some quite romantic. Faced with the diabolical madness conjured up by Adolf Hitler and his wicked henchmen, Angelo is forced to make tough decisions, as all of Europe burns in a Hellish fire reminiscent of Dante's Inferno.
"Liszt's Dante Symphony" takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride spanning two generations and features a huge cast of historical figures, including Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, Albert Einstein, Otto von Bismarck, Pope Pius IX, Napoleon III, Victor Hugo, Rossini, Hector Berlioz and many others.
It is an entertaining read filled with intrigue, suspense, secret codes, historical facts, romance, wit, and heroic deeds that will keep the reader engaged from its stormy beginning to its cataclysmic end.
