Conclave by Robert Harris
  

Lovereading view...

The best-selling author of An Officer and a Spy, The Ghost and Fatherland turns to today’s Vatican in a ripped-from-the-headlines novel, and gives us his most ambitious, page-turning thriller yet–where the power of God is nearly equalled by the ambition of men.

If you like Robert Harris you might also like to read books by William Boyd, M. C. Scott and William Ryan.

Synopsis

Conclave by Robert Harris

The Pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, one hundred and eighteen cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals. Over the next seventy-two hours one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.
