CATACOMB

On a field trip to Rome, a quiet teenage girl suddenly discovers her secret mental powers and must learn to use them in confronting a conspiracy to destroy the Vatican.

On a high school field trip to Rome at Easter time, Monica Tarquini discovers she has secret powers. Gunmen, knowing of her powers, twice try to kidnap her, but she gets away. Then, while visiting a recently-opened catacomb, she and her fellow classmates are trapped when the entrance to the catacomb is dynamited. Seeking a way out, they are not only pursued by the gunmen, but must face other perils, including a flood. When they finally reach the end, they come to a massive underground temple, where a mysterious cult seizes Monica to use her powers in their plan to destroy the Vatican.
