Simon Howard's review
Dec 08, 2016
A political thriller set among the College of Cardinals as they elect a new Pope. This was great: a real page-turner with plenty of twists and turns, but with lots of complex layers underlying the surface plot, and a good dose of moral ambiguity. The dialogue, in particular the set piece speeches, was very well written. I've no idea how true to life this description of events might be, but felt like a real insight into the machinations of the Catholic Church.
