A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From dust jacket notes: "...Vatican is a rich and monumental saga with a scope and daring that slice through the protective secrecy of the Roman Catholic church to reveal as never before the lives of men and women entangled in the extraordinary battle between faith and power. Spanning five decades and set against a background of Old World palaces and sumptuous villas, papal apartments and cardinals' quarters, Vatican teems with an unforgettable cast of characters. Popes, bishops, and bankers, saints and sinners, men and the women they love intertwine and clash with each other amid the dramatic events that affect the daily lives of nearly a billion people in every corner of the world...."

From Publishers Weekly:

The subject of this long and intriguing novel is the Vatican's elaborate bureaucracy, in particular its powerful financial network, headed by a mysterious figure known as the Keeper. Another central character, who gives the story its slant, is American Richard Lansing, who joins the Vatican as a young monsignore in 1945, and becomes the confidant of five successive popes. When he reaches the apex of his career, he staunchly opposes any Church bargain with Mammon. Martin (author of bestsellers The Final Conclave and Hostage to the Devil), was a professor in the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute: he has an insider's knowledge of the intrigues and power plays that go on behind the papacy's smooth facade. His tale encompasses the fall of Mussolini, the penetration of the Vatican by a Soviet mole, the murder of a pope in the Soviet interest (with help from Vatican officials), and other major events real or imagined. Vatican is not unlike a bureaucracy itself: intricate, far from iconoclastic, and impeded in its forward progress by obsessive attention to detail. 60,000 first printing; $75,000 ad/promo; author tour.
