Can Humphrey Barrow, a young Jesuit priest with two doctorates in the theology of celibacy, save the Catholic Church from those that would change it beyond recognition……the victims?
One person, in particular, is determined to bring about change and she harnesses the mighty powers of the marketplace to achieve her aims. Will Tammy Shroton, a formidable young American with a past she will not talk about, triumph over the cunning and ambitious Cardinal Forrundiker or will she kneel at the altar rail and accept his blessing as he moves relentlessly upwards in the Church? Will Sophie LaNeve, the cardinal’s lowly and frustrated assistant, get over her hatred of authority and employ her fine mind to good purpose or bad?
And then there’s Fi D’Alianti, the corporate raider with everything except the one thing she wants most. Can she bring about the ultimate takeover bid in support of her only friend? Does religion as we know it, end in 2034 or will those looking back see it as just one more hurdle in the creation of eternity? Are vows made forever or just until they need to be broken?
God was bored for a while, but you won’t be in this thought-provoking thriller set in the Vatican of the future.
