The best-selling author of Enigma and Fatherland turns to today's Vatican in a ripped-from-the-headlines novel, and gives us his most ambitious, page-turning thriller yet--where the power of God is nearly equaled by the ambition of men. The pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, one hundred and eighteen cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals. Over the next seventy-two hours one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on Earth.

Professional reviews

"Intrigue reigns at the Vatican as the world's cardinals gather to elect a new pope. Narrator Roy McMillan takes full advantage of the opportunity to display his range. While not strictly miraculous, his transformation of Cardinal Lomeli, the protagonist, from dispirited to Spirit-filled is most certainly charismatic. As dean of the College of Cardinals, Lomeli must preside over the conclave, with all its politics. Through each crisis managed and decision made, McMillan turns Lomeli into a man with a calling. But what makes McMillan's performance exemplary is that while navigating Lomeli's transformation, he also undertakes those of a host of cardinals, including hard-liner Italian Tedesco, savvy Canadian Tremblay, dynamic Nigerian Adeyemi, and gentle Filipino Ben’tez. McMillan's performance is a triumph, as is the book itself. K.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
