On a late Saturday in April, the venerable Roman church of San Tommaso in Pallaria became the site of a most curious assemblage. A superannuated jet-setter and her junkie nephew, a bad-tempered, ultra-British Major, a boisterous Baron and Baroness bearing an astonishing resemblance to one another, and an extremely reticent best-selling author were being gathered together under the aegis of one Sebastian Mailer and his Il Cicerone Conducted Tours for an expedition that he promised would be "most unconventional".
