Laura and Brett were on their dream honeymoon in Rome, stopping at the Trevi Fountain to make a wish for their future. They kissed as Laura flicked a euro into the water.

THE LOST PROGENITOR
During the festivities of the Semana Santa, the brotherhood leave Malaga to begin their holy quest to Coco's Island, a quest that would bring many riches and favour from the Holy See in Rome. Boarding a flight from Alicante to Puerto Rico, Gregorio Santos had high hopes of one day serving the lord from the Vatican as part of the College of Cardinals, part of the Holy See. The recovery of the blessed Mary would be his ticket to Rome.
Ed Ryker, Director and Commander in Chief of LARA, is called to Rome to meet with Cardinal Personti, a member of the College of Cardinals. He is tasked with a covert mission, known by a chosen few, for the sake of the Catholic Church and the Holy See.
The Brethren, a group of Antipopes, have risen after two centuries to claim a lost treasure that includes the golden image of the Blessed Mary.
The whereabouts of the treasure of Lima, missing for centuries, had been uncovered by Gregorio Santos, as part of his quest for enlightenment and a seat within the Holy See. With the blessing of the Vatican, Gregorio and his brotherhood were tasked to search for the treasure. They never reached their destination.
The threat of the Brethren finding the treasure and claiming it for themselves could cause repercussions throughout the Catholic Church and strengthen the Antipopes in their attempt to take over the Vatican. A threat that could bring down the church, start a Holy war involving every nation, and would escalate into a third world war.
Jack Case and his team, along with a treasure hunter and a representative of Rome, must find the treasure and defeat the Brethren before it is too late.

Ground to air missiles are sent to dispel the invaders, but after several frigates are destroyed and a threat of retaliatory action is threatened it is found that no human is responsible.
As world news reports on the escalating catastrophes developing across the globe, the networks are taken over by the image of a hooded man, his face hidden in darkness. A voice, electronically altered, booms through the speakers.
"World, hear this... In seventy-two hours the global network will be under my control. The global economy will be mine, transport will be mine, the technology you rely on to go about your daily lives will be mine. My demands are simple, reduce the worlds carbon footprint within the next thirty days by 5%. Succeed and guarantee a 5% reduction every thirty days for the next three calendar months and I will return some control. Fail, and I will obliterate a city each month. A city that will be uninhabitable for years, a lesson to those who fail to take me seriously. Here is a demonstration... do not doubt me. Raphael has spoken"
Jack Case is tasked to find the madman, after a nuclear explosion destroys an uninhabited island in the middle of the Pacific ocean.
In an impossible search, LARA must battle through deadly challenges, a game of cat and mouse as Raphael employs technology and his disciples to thwart them at every turn. Working blind Jack soon realises that, for the first time, LARA has no answers. They are destined to fail.
