The Pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, 118 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 72 hours, one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.

Fantastic story. The research into the machinations of electing the new pope and the workings of the Catholic Church is superb. Intelligent and thought provoking. Masterful story telling and an unexpected twist that put a smile on my face. Page turner - very cleverly written.
