Kennedy Smyth's firm provides security for companies and charities in seriously dangerous countries. She doesn't usually take on frivolous jobs, but when an old friend asks her to protect his son's movie shoot, she finds it hard to refuse. Also hard to resist is the film's charismatic star, Rogan St. James. The handsome actor piques her interest, while the strange actions of the terrorist threatening the set raise her suspicions.

Even though he's a successful actor, Rogan wants more - a real woman to love, the type he doesn't think exists... until he meets Kennedy. She intrigues him with her confidence and passion for her work, and frustrates him with her refusal to let him get close.

But Kennedy finds herself in a vulnerable position when she discovers that the terrorist isn't actually out to derail the film. She's the real target - and if he finds out how much Rogan means to her, he could be next....

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryhope | 2/20/2014

    " Interesting at times, but not a scholarly work. More like a rehash of gossip and past stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorothy | 2/12/2014

    " Lo. This book came iut at just the right moment!ved this insider look at the Vatican "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/11/2014

    " I enjoyed this book very much. I heard the author on NPR's Fresh Air and he mentioned his book and I bought a copy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsey Bray | 2/11/2014

    " This book just seemed very mediocre. Some parts were interesting, some were dull, and it was just ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Phillips | 2/1/2014

    " Fascinating look behind the scenes. The inner workings of the Vatican aren't as smooth as it seems from the outside. Very timely with the conclave and new Pope. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 1/23/2014

    " Although I am not a Roman Catholic, I found this a fascinating read. I heard the author being interviewed on NPR and was so impressed that I went out and immediately bought his book. It's incredibly well written, and the stories this 30-year veteran of Vatican journalism are alternatively outrageously funny and profoundly disturbing. Given the recent events, he couldn't have released a book that's more timely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dean Brodhag | 1/19/2014

    " For Catholics and those interested in the Vatican. When I heard the author on the radio he mentioned that the Pope does NOT have regular meeting with his direct reports. Not daily, weekly, monthly, annually!!! I did not see that quote in the book but it perhaps explains a lot about the disfunction. A lot of the drew n experiences with the Pope who just stepped down. It seemed a balanced presentation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ted | 1/9/2014

    " The authored covered the Vatican for the Catholic News Service since 1983. In sprightly and sometimes funny prose, he tells the inside story of many important events that he covered in his career. He does not appear to have an ax to grind but with affection and concern reveals the management problems that this huge institution needs to address. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 1/3/2014

    " I thought this was an excellent telling of the inner workings of the Vatican. My hope is that our new Pope gets it and does something about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed Hawkins | 12/31/2013

    " Good gossipy book about the Vatican by a retired Vatican journalist from the USA. I read this after Pope Benedict announced his resignation and before the election of Pope Francis. A fun book, informative with lots of background on current issues, and well worth the time/cost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 12/23/2013

    " Not knowing much about the inner workings of the Vatican, this was an eye-opener. I read this during the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI's resignation and as the world awaited the cry of "Habemus Papam!" electing Pope Francis, so it was all the more interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris Hershey | 12/5/2013

    " Very much a tabloid read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 11/21/2013

    " Fourth star partly for the behind-the-scenes of the news biz that I love. Fascinating account of the ins and outs of Vatican personalities, politics and how remarkably worldly this seat of a major world religion is. The often anecdotal narrative made for engaging reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lincoln | 6/29/2013

    " Really tough topic to write well about and this is a timely and excellent book. Best chapters are the first and last chapters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 5/31/2012

    " What a time to read Vatican Diaries...provided some interesting insights into the workings of the curia and the disfunction of the vatican. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 5/5/2012

    " Very interesting insideres view of the vatican. Scary, but interesting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/18/2012

    " Admittedly there is much to be negative about but this is so full of negativity and very little time is given to the positive that does come from the Vatican. Only at the very end does the author seem to begin to understand who Pope Benedict is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 12/18/2011

    " The book is very informative and gives only a glimpse, I'm sure, of what goes on behind the Vatican walls. Highly recommend, although I warn you, it may only serve to reinforce your disillusion and disappointment in the Catholic Church (it did for me) "
