WHAT A FANTASTIC PREMISE!!!
I could not put this book down from the moment I began to read it. There are so many twists and turns in the plot that by the time I neared the end, I did not even know who the bad guys were let alone guess what they were up to. The author remains true to the History of The Church but creates his own machinations to further entice and enthrall us. Having spent some time in Rome myself, I know that Mr. Shah's descriptions capture the very essence of the Holy City. I am always concious of not revealing too much of the plot when I write a review, I would not want to deprive anyone of this exciting roller coaster ride. This is a must read. I cannot wait for Mr. Shah's next book. I only hope it is a sequel to this one.
