Nadja knows the oligarch Igor inside out. As his interpreter she has seen more of him than both of them care to admit. But his latest project is a lot more public: a lavish villa, which he has decided to build right on top of a bridge in the heart of Vienna: if the Medici can do it, why not me? But Nadja, her best friend Vera and her nanny Teresa have a sabotage plan.
