    The Usual Vatican Modus Operandus

    A well-written book which illuminates a strange murder occurring in the Apostalic Palace in the Vatican in May of 1998. On May 4 two Swiss Guards, a lance corporal and his commander, and the commander's wife, were found dead of gunshot wounds. It appeared to be a murder suicide with the lance corporal, Cedric Tornay, of the French-speaking part of Switzerland, having shot the commander, Alois Estermann, of the German-speaking part of Switzerland, and his wife, Meza Romero, then shot himself in the mouth. The affair was quickly hushed up with a verdict determined and announced by the Vatican before the bodies were waked. Of course, the younger corporal was vilified as deranged and ignored by the religious authorities including Pope John Paul II. The author's interest was piqued and he followed all means at his disposal to better understand the physical and psychological forensics of the crime. This was no easy task as the Vatican holds secrets and demands others under its control to do the same.

    This was an enjoyable read and one can say the results of Mr. Follain's investigation were as satisfying as would be expected considering topics involved in this mystery included military incompetence, spiritual emptiness, homosexuality, cultural superiority, political intrigue and even Opus Dei. What else could one ask for in a mystery of such strange circumstances? Get on board and go for the ride.
