Well I have finally finished this book. As I've been busy with other hobbies and farm work it's taken me quite a while.
If you like 'James Bond' type adventures then you will like this . It's 'James Bond' without the girls, which is just as well as there is a chunk of the story set around the Vatican. The theme being the releasing from a Chinese prison of a Catholic Cardinal. Interweaved with this we are taken through the procedures required to acquire a new Pope, being a Catholic I knew some of this but not all. I therefore found this part very interesting but the 'Bond' adventures I found a little far fetched (but it's fiction after all)
