1946: Florence is in ruins, all but one of its bridges destroyed. As Edward Burgess wanders through the city he keeps seeing his old friends. But no, the friends are dead and what he sees are ghosts. All except one, and that one has good reason to want people to continue to think he is dead. Now the action moves to a remote village in the Apennines, a meeting with a beautiful peasant girl, and a life and death confrontation.
