Broken Sword: The Angel of Death begins in New York City.
A mysterious woman named Anna Maria is waiting for him at his office and pretends to be pursued by gangsters because she's in possession of an old manuscript. George and Anna Maria just have time to run away from the Martino's gang, and let the manuscript on the hands of Fingers Martino.
They manage to reach Alfonso's Hotel (where Anna Maria checked in earlier), but the mobsters are already there.
George sneaks into the factory and overhears a conversation between Fingers Martino and Vincenzo Spallacci, who has obtained the manuscript.
George takes back the manuscript by pushing the Martino's safe in a bone cruncher. Back in the Bail Bonds Office, he and Anna Maria try to decypher the manuscript, and figure out that the fortified city on it must be an old Citadel in Istanbul.
