A fast-paced thriller about the conspiracy surrounding the 1981 attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II, from the author of the international bestseller The Last Pope.

An international journalist, a war-weary Portuguese veteran, a Muslim with visions of the Virgin Mary, a rogue priest, and members of the world's most powerful-and secretive-organizations come together in another gripping Vatican thriller. After the suspicious death of Pope John Paul I, a few operatives bold enough to penetrate the Vatican's shadowy inner circle will investigate what went wrong- and try to prevent the popular new Pope from meeting the same fate. But unfortunately for them, a passion for truth and justice can be dangerous, especially to John Paul II.
