Equally concerned, but not out of any sense of compassion, is Alberto Cardinal Valendrea, the Vatican's Secretary of State. Valendrea desperately covets the papacy, having narrowly lost out to Clement at the last conclave. Now the Pope's interest in Fatima threatens to uncover a shocking ancient truth that Valendrea has kept to himself for many years.
When Pope Clement sends Michener to the Romanian highlands, then to a Bosnian holy site, in search of a priest, possibly one of the last people on Earth who knows Mary's true message, a perilous set of events unfolds. Michener finds himself embroiled in murder, suspicion, suicide, deceit, and his forbidden passion for a beloved woman. In a desperate search for answers, he travels to Pope Clement's birthplace in Germany, where he learns that the third secret of Fatima may dictate the very fate of the Church, a fate now lying in Michener's own hands.

Captivating and moving story!
I thoroughly enjoyed Berry's previous novel, The Romanov Prophecy, and so was very excited to see this release on Audible. Like his previous work, Berry puts his spin on a classic historical event with intrigue. As such, his work may remind readers of Dan Brown and such, but he truly is a unique author. He develops his character well, and the story is continually moving. My only critique of this novel was that the ending, that is the secret, seemed a bit convenient, and thus not credible. Oh well, the story is still great and definitely a must listen!

This one is ok
What did you like best about The Third Secret? What did you like least?
The writing was great and the constant interation between the characters was good. I thought the end was a bit of a letdown and Mr Berry was promoting his agenda. It is the book by him that I liked the least. The potenr\tial was great and then it just duds out
What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?
He was great
Was The Third Secret worth the listening time?
up until the end

A very enjoyable conspiracy story, although by the time you get to the 'third secrect' the revalation is a bit too convienient. Would love to know how accurate the portrayl of the workings of vatican city is, but fascinating none the less.

Berry at his best again....
Would you listen to The Third Secret again? Why?
Definitely. Steve Berry authors some fantastic stories, and this is no exception. Great insight into life within the Vatican. I just love the early religious based conspiracy theories and their development through the subsequent years.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Some great portrayals of life in the Vatican.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me want to research the various alleged sightings of the Virgin Mary. The subject matter was very compelling
Any additional comments?
Well worth a listen
