In the closing years of this Pontiff’s reign Morris West tells the story of the next Papal election and of certain characters who may well have a part to play in it. Most important of these is the eminence of the title, Luca, Cardinal Rossini, a man who suffered torture and degradation as a young priest in Argentina, who lived in exile in Rome and was promoted to high office in the Vatican. By his own admission he is a flawed man, but he is still a man of power and a possible candidate for election. There is, however, much more to this novel than Vatican politics. Love and passion, tenderness and intrigue, heady suspense and high drama, all are here. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Morris has done it again.” 

    Barrett McGurn, author of A Reporter Looks At the Vatican 

  • [West] succeeds in balancing contemporary Vatican intrigue and details…with Rossini’s myriad political, spiritual and personal crises.” 

    Publishers Weekly 

  • Eminence is a brisk thriller and simultaneously a very relevant examination of the byzantine Vatican City; but the ultimate  pleasure of the book, as with the best of West’s writings, derives from his complex and very human portrait of a modern man of the cloth.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review
