“A tale of demonic influence and the coming of the anti-Pope, demonstrates how evil could come of seeming good.

grooming his resistant, adopted son for that position. The book provides a close-up look at the political maneuverings
and strategies involved in progression up the Vatican hierarchy, and the non-religious motives behind Church assistance
worldwide. Its central concept is that of evil deriving from blinded men who only want to do good.” Gina MacDonald, review,

If you find it, do not let it pass by. The prose alone is worth the read. Without going into it too much, I can only say that it's dark enough
to get under my skin, make it hard for me to sleep. That, I can assure you, takes a lot. I read Stephen King in fifth grade with no
adverse effects, but this book was severely dark, and that's just the way it should be.
Again: don't let it pass you by. When and if the opportunity arises to get it, buy it fast. Then prepare to stay awake for many nights.
