Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of Enigma and Fatherland turns to today's Vatican in a ripped-from-the-headlines novel and gives us his most ambitious, pause-resisting thriller yet - where the power of God is nearly equaled by the ambition of men.
The pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, 118 cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals. Over the next 72 hours, one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.

What a twist

Some may find this slow at first, but I was fascinated.

The twist at the end was well done. Highly recommend it.

Excellent book, spoilt by its ending.

Excellent story, excellent narrator. The story had a excellent flow and wonderful balance of real details and literary drama. Unfortunately I felt it had one plot twist too many. I found the ending unbelievable.
