War hero and infamous ladies’ man General MacKenzie Hawkins is a living legend. His life story has even been sold to Hollywood. But now he stands accused of defacing a historic monument in China’s Forbidden City. Under house arrest in Peking, with a case against him pending in Washington, it looks like the end of Mac’s illustrious career.
But he has a plan of his own - and it includes kidnapping the Pope. What’s the ransom? Just one American dollar - for every Catholic in the world. Add to the mix a slew of shady “investors”; Hawkins’ four persuasive, well-endowed ex-wives; and a young lawyer and fellow soldier who wants nothing more than to return to private life - and you’ve got one relentlessly irreverent page-turner.

Ludlum;s true calling
What did you love best about The Road to Gandolfo?
It put me in mind of Biller Wilder at his best, A laugh a minute. Outrageous storyline, memorable characters and perfect pacing. I was actually laughing out loud. I found myself imagining the perfect cast for the story. It would make a great movie.I'm reading the sequel the Road to Omaha, and it doesn't miss abeat.
What other book might you compare The Road to Gandolfo to and why?
Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listened to dozens of Scott Bick's performances and this could be his best. His British accents are a bit stilted but, easily forgiveable.I still give him a 10 on this. No one else could have pulled this off as well.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
"And you thought you knew Robert Ludlum"
