Venice, The year of our Lord 1902. The bell tower of Saint Mark’s Cathedral suddenly comes crashing down. The investigation establishes that it was a case of mere structural failure. But up on the mysterious “Elsewhere” base they know that’s not the way things went: the collapse of the tower was provoked with criminal intent by a sinister organization.
