This massive thriller pits a scheming prince of the Church who believes he was once Alexander the Great against the Addison brothers—Harry, a Hollywood lawyer, and Danny, a Vatican priest. It seems that Danny had the bad luck to hear another cardinal’s confession outlining a heinous plot to poison China’s water supply in order to win the Vatican bankers a multi-billion-dollar contract to rebuild it—and of course to take advantage of the opportunity to convert a quarter of the world’s population and ensure the Church’s world domination into the next century. Spanning the globe from Vatican City to Beijing, from Los Angeles to Switzerland, the action never stops. And whenever it seems to falter for more than a paragraph, someone among Folsom’s picaresque cast of minor characters (a nun, a dwarf, a CIA station chief, a beautiful television journalist, and an African poet, among others) turns up just in time to give it a nudge. Fans of Folsom’s intense novel The Day After Tomorrow won’t be disappointed.

    " For some reason, my mind wandered while reading this book. I don't know why but it just didn't complete engross me. Interesting plotline, Vatican intrigue, nuns succumbing to physical desire, estranged brothers... but... just didn't do it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chemb | 1/25/2014

    " Just like his first book Allan Folsom has woven a marvel. A plot that revolves around the Vatican this book intrigues you like nothing else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry Callister | 1/10/2014

    " when i search for vacation books i try a bit of everything. this was filled with suspense and intrique and was somewhat believable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 1/5/2014

    " Not quite Day After Tomorrow, but still very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dixie Johns | 12/13/2013

    " Not a mystery reader, but this one caught my attention, for the wrong reason, because of the cover of a pic of the dome of the Sistine Chapel. The author was skillful as keeping the intrigue and interest of the reader while trying to figure out "who done it" and how the characters are related. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Arwen56 | 12/9/2013

    " Thriller del genere "americanata pazzesca" ed anche un po' noiosetto. "

    " bad reader. Stupid story, i couldn't get into it. I listened to about 4 tapes and almost 1/2 of each tape involved a sex scene. The premise of the story is good, but it's poorly written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 7/25/2013

    " two brothers - 1 a priest and 1 a LA lawyer. Web of deceit with Vatican and Cardinals and CIA involvement. Lots of intrigue. Read this years and years before DaVinci Code became popular! "

    " I thought this book was great with all it's twists and turns. I am normally not a "thriller" reader, but this book was great. I will definitely be checking into some more from Folsom! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 6/26/2012

    " Another great book by Allen Folsom. Revolves around the Vatican. A real exciting ending. Again, a sex scene not needed to enhance this story. Nevertheless, a great book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe O'c | 5/5/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 -kevin- | 5/21/2011

    " Ludlum is dead, but this fits the bill for violence and intrique. Pretty good for not being terrorist based and not reverting to the Cold War. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 4/9/2011

    " Somewhat violent. Confusing at the beginning - lots of details, and then a speedy finish! "

    " Funny... was browsing my Amazon history and saw that I purchased (and subsequently read) this book back in 1999. In other words, it was forgettable.

    I wonder how many other books I've read like this that have been totally lost to the memory vacuum. "
