Ralph McInerny recommends
thumb
The Death of a Pope (2009)
Piers Paul Read
"In The Death of a Pope, the versatile Piers Paul Read, who has distinguished himself in many genres, returns to what can be called the ecclesiastical thriller. If the mystery looks to the past to explain a crime already committed, the thriller aims to prevent something from happening. When that something is a terrorist act, planned for the Vatican, drama is assured... To say more would rob the reader of his pleasure. The Death of a Pope is a great Read in every sense of the term."
