Haley, suicidal after Willi’s death, joins a CIA mission, then finds her alive in the hands of slavers. As both face death, his alter ego returns to kill her captors. Then past events intrude.... More > Valen, a Gnostic, forges a letter in Jesus’ name, then Cesare Borgia adapts it. Centuries later, the letter involves John McCone, J.
