Despite attempts to connect the Vatican to the Mafia, it appears that both institutions used the same banker at different times. Possibly, the banker used a Vatican account to launder Mafia money; but there is no convincing argument that the Vatican knew about the transactions. Otherwise, a good re-telling of the activities of bankers Roberto Calvi and Michele Sindona, even if Sindona's climatic end came after the publication of the book.
