AN INVESTIGATION INTO MURDER

In God's Name has been at the top of the bestseller lists all over the world. It contains some of the most explosive and dramatic revelations ever published about the internal affairs of the Vatican.

During the late evening of September 28th or the early morning of September 29th, 1978, Pope John Paul I, Albino Luciani, known as 'the smiling Pope' died only thirty-three days after his election.

David Yallop began his investigation into this death at the request of certain individuals resident in Vatican City who were disturbed by a cover-up of the true circumstances surrounding the discovery of the Pope's body. It is his conviction that murder was the fate of Albino Luciani and he presents his evidence in this enthralling book.

Over three years continual and exhaustive research, David Yallop uncovered a chain of corruption that linked leading figures in financial, criminal and clerical circles around the world in a conspiracy of awesome proportions. To this day, several years after its first publication (1984), the central questions raised in In God's Name remain unanswered and the frightening accusations still undisputed.

Review:

Denounced by the Vatican... Acclaimed around the world... Vindicated by new evidence... Winner of the 1985 Crime writers' Gold Dagger Award for best non-fiction... Over 5,000,000 copies sold. -- From the Publisher

"Faniciful and absurd" - The Vatican

"His book has two strengths. It brings up to date and tells well the story of how the Vatican has conducted its finacial affairs. The portayal of hitherto little-known John Paul I is also excellently done... an engrossing and disturbing book. It reflects no credit on the Vatican that its spokesmen affect to view the charges with contempt and ignore the questions raised" - The Economist

"A thriller without an ending... he has surely proved that there is a case to answer" - The Guardian

"A vast amount of first class evidence... Read the book. Weigh the evidence. Make your own judgement" - Morris West -- From the Publisher
