Vatican tours and MAFIA connection

 Vatican City Tours agency is history. Interestingly, we have learned that owners Thomas Burdick and Charlene Mitchell wrote "Blue Thunder", which investigates the murder of Donald J. Aronow in February 1987. The story involves George Bush, Chicago mobsters, and a colourful list of characters including Red Adair, Evil Knievel, and Ayatollah Khomeini.  The plot thickens in the knowledge that Burdick used to write for Playboy magazine, where he hatched the Aronow story. Burdick led at least one double life. Here in Rome, it was Vatican City Tours.  More news to follow about the Burdick / Mitchell mystery and of course our own tours of the Vatican , which are proving popular on TripAdvisor.
