Lausanne, Switzerland. In the cathedral tower lives a strange boy with a limp who talks to the bells. In a luxury penthouse lives a high-class prostitute who's in mortal danger. And in a low-rent hotel lives a private investigator who has no idea how he got there. Jay Harper finds himself in Switzerland on the trail of a missing Olympic athlete. A hard drinker, he can barely remember how he got home last night, let alone why he accepted this job. When he meets the stunning but aloof Katherine in a hotel bar, he quickly realises that he's not the only one in town who's for hire. She's a high-class hooker who can't believe her luck. Which is about to change. For the worse. In the meantime, Marc Rochat spends his time in the belfry talking to the statues, his cat and the occasional ghost. His job is to watch over Lausanne at night and to wait for the angel his mother told him he'd one day have to save. When he sees Katherine, he thinks his moment has come. Which indeed it has. But not in a good way...
Tourism is becoming important part of every economic development plan in many countries around the world. There are many places that are visited and becoming more attractive for tourists and travelers, and places which years ago were unattractive to many, now are becoming the most desirable destinations. No one could ever think that even space or the moon would become a destination. Now, there is even a waiting list for visiting both. Tourism is unique as a service industry. What distinguishes it from other sectors is the place of production is the same as the place of consumption; hence, it is the destination. However, in the beginning some places are not destinations intended for tourists and travelers from the beginning. At first, it is a habitat familiar to its local population, and only through interventions (initiatives and incentives), it is able to be transformed in a desirable destination. As tourism is gaining in importance, good planning and strategies are essential for the destination to gain the maximum economic and social wealth form it. The importance of tourism in the economy is enormous and it is often referred as one of the largest industry in the world.
