Many years after becoming an international best seller, The Devil's Advocate continues to rate among the best theological fiction of the 20th century. As beautifully written as West's New York Times best seller, The Shoes of the Fisherman, it was nominated for the National Book Award. Monsignor Blaise Meredith is dying of stomach cancer. On his last mission as canonical inquisitor, he is in southern Italy investigating the life of the mysterious Giacomo Nerone, whom the locals are proclaiming to be a saint. Three people hold the key to understanding the enigmatic life and suspicious death of Nerone, but none of them are talking. Time is running out for Meredith, who hopes to discover not only the truth about the local saint, but also the meaning of his own life before it's too late.

    " Beautiful, a story of redemption. I cried at the end. "

    " Deals with the idea of what constitutes a sinner or a saint in a fairly good way. Also delves into the whole idea of faith vs communism; can a social system made by man be perfect? (West emphatically answers no). The story of the loss of faith and then its rediscovery within a Roman Catholic framework. "

    " I had seen this author on my mother's bookshelves when I was little, so expected it to read like "popular fiction". I have now read 2 Morris West books, and I think when the 20th century reaches the "classic literature" stage, Morris West will be one of the writers whose names and works remain in circulation. Set in the rural mountains of Italy, this very powerful novel tells of an aging and ill Vatican leader's last gift to his community. Crossing religions, class and politics, this story of old secrets and new (self) discovery is pure literary art. I highly recommend it. "
