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.

Any additional comments?

What a great read/listen. I was hooked from the very start. I read and listen to a lot and this is one of the best. How wonderful that I have a new author to get to know by serial reading :)

- Annette M Long "I love a good story and I love good facts. Books that combine math, physics, geology, history, archaeology and a story rocks. People too!"

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.
