Present day Vatican secret security officials are hunting gold given by the Nazi's to Pope Pius XII by the Nazi's to be held in the Vatican Bank in WW2. Also part of the agreement was safe escape for high ranking Nazi officials in exchange for Nazi's to stop killing Jews (at the end of the war no less when 6,000,000 were already dead). The gold was stolen by an officer in the German army officer, Hans Dieter, and hidden on his family family farm in Germany. Dieter eventually emigrates to America and settles down to life in upstate NY. Upon his death 60 years later, he sends his son, a Navy seal and his friend Dan Flaherty, ex IRA, to retrieve the gold. With Vatican security, Interpol and MI-6 on their tails, can James Dieter and Dan Flaherty successfully retrieve the hidden gold and outrun those in pursuit. TITLE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO ANGELS FELL due to legal issues according to amazon who is promoting it. While I enjoyed the plot the ending was not what I had expected, but it was too abrupt.
