Most Helpful Customer Reviews
If it hadn't dragged on for quite so long, it would have been a much more enjoyable read. The premise was a very good one, I just feel that there were several parts that could have been left out entirely and still had the same, if not a better, effect.
Intrigue in the Roman Catholic church regarding the election of a new pope, affiliation with the Nazis in WWII and paid official assassins for the church. Readable but frustrating at times.
