Product Description:

A dying English priest is dispatched from Rome as a canonical inquisitor in order to investigate the cult of sainthood that has grown around Giacomo Nerone in the desolate town of Calabria in Southern Italy. Reprint. NYT.

From the Back Cover:

A superior novel, intricately worked out at several levels of  human and spiritual quest . . . beautiful and impassioned.”—Commonweal

“A reading experience of real emotional intensity.”—The New York Times

“A unique cloak-and-dagger drama of the human soul.”—Saturday Review
 

The church wants to know the truth about Giacomo Nerone—possibly a martyr, certainly a military deserter and father of an illegitimate child. Can this man be a saint? The Vatican sends Fr. Blaise Meredith, a mortally ill English priest, to an impoverished post-war Italian village to untangle the web of facts, rumors, lies, and myths that surround the life and death of the mysterious Nerone. The Devil’s Advocate, Morris West’s best-selling novel, is a vivid story of spiritual frailty, tenacious faith, and the power of goodness to prevail over despair.
