Robert Harris delivers a fast-paced thriller set in the heart of the Vatican City and entering round the election of a new pope. 
This book might be downright offensive to some but I found it a really good read and was pretty much sucked in until I finished it. 

It’s not a great work of literature but it doesn’t need to be. 

There is a story and it does concern the outgoing pope and the candidates for the position. However the election of a ….. pope was just a stretch too far for me and it all fell apart. I did get this about halfway through and I’m sure this will be a movie at some point. The scene in the bathroom with the discussion about the razors was the giveaway.

It’s all a little bit ‘now’ for my liking but it was a good read nonetheless and the settings were well described.
