In 1978 Pope John Paul I dies in mysterious circumstances. His successor, John Paul II, emerges from the conclave unaware that he is in mortal danger. It is only through the actions of a few loyal operatives that his assassination is prevented.
Thirty years later journalist Sarah Monteiro begins to uncover the sinister machinations of a covert agency, whose web of lies and injustice hides the true power behind the throne.
It would seem that the dark forces are still at large, and Sarah faces a life-or-death struggle in the name of truth and faith.


Utdrag ur boken:
Everything has a beginning.

The start, the departure point, the zero, Sunday, the starting gun, the sprouting seed pushing through the earth for light, the splash into water, the earliest heartbeat, the first word, the first stone of a village, villa, city, wall, house, palace, church, building. Of this building in an unnamed city. A luxury restaurant occupies the ground floor and basement, as indicated by the menu displayed at the side of the door. Its status is not openly announced to the world at large, but suggested by the tinted-glass doors, always closed, and by the haughtiness of the doorman, impeccably dressed in a burgundy uniform. The absence of prices on the menu and the many phrases in French are also a sign of its exclusiveness, even if the city is located on French soil, which is neither confirmed nor denied. What is certain is that this restaurant does not need to advertise any of its services, which, in itself, presupposes an exclusive clientele.

läsglädje-79 2010-11-20 17:44
Sättet Luis Miguel Rocha beskriver den katolska korrumptionen i Vatikanen och hur han beskriver miljö, personer sättet han berättar sin historia gör att man bara vill läsa vidare och man dras i väg ur tid och rum. Men när man kommer allt närmre slutet och upplösningen blir den segare och segare man vill inte läsa ut den för den tappar allt för mycket stämning. det jag gillar med boken
är att han har lyckats beskriva Vatikanens inevånare med en sådan perfektion och tro verdighet.
