She was old when the world was young. She was there when Brutus slew Caesar, and when Picket made his suicidal charge up Cemetery Ridge. She was waiting when Man first landed on another planet, and was there when he finally reached the stars.
Who is she, and what is her purpose?
That's what an alien named Leonardo must discover, before more men die and he himself is corrupted beyond salvation.
Come along as he attempts to unravel the eternal mystery of the Dark Lady.
