9780241951958: The Holy Assassin

Deep in the Vatican's inner sanctum lies a dark and terrifying secret . . . a secret that has been concealed for decades, and one that its keepers will stop at nothing to protect. In 1978 Pope John Paul I dies in mysterious circumstances. His successor, John Paul II, emerges from the conclave unaware that he is in mortal danger. It is only through the actions of a few loyal operatives that his assassination is prevented. Thirty years later journalist Sarah Monteiro begins to uncover the sinister machinations of a covert agency, whose web of lies and injustice hides the true power behind the throne. It would seem that the dark forces are still at large, and Sarah faces a life-or-death struggle in the name of truth and faith.

Review:

A complex and involving thriller...  --Barry Forshaw, Good Book Guide

A definite must-read. --Booklist

Luís's books reminds Defoe's irony, Swift's sarcasm, the geniality of Dickens, Wilde's verve, and the sagacity of Virginia Wolf. In the suspense literature area reminds Graham Greene and John Le Carré. --George Arion, Romanian writer

An immensely entertaining book * USA Today *
