Who would have thought that a 768-page novel about the Reformation would be any good? Especially one written by a trio of anonymous Italian authors sharing a pseudonym. I mean come on, doesn't that sound like complete shite?!

Who knew there was so much blood & guts spilled over the anabaptist heresy? This book certainly doesn't lack for action as the title character, a shady Vatican secret agent, plays cat and mouse with Gert of the Well, his opposite number on the Protestant side. Along with your history lesson you get proto-communism, free love, bank fraud, crypto-jewery, backstabbing, book-binding, Venetian whoring, and vivid ultra-vi in various medieval European locales. If they ever make a movie of this one I will be first in line to buy a bucket of popcorn.
