compelling plot, filled with religious terrorism, scandalous
revelations and political intrigue.
in the historic context of current scandals plaguing the Catholic
Church, Pope Pius Innocent escapes the Vatican after discovering
hidden documents that rock the foundations of Christianity
and shatter his basic beliefs in Catholicism. German-born

person who can bring the Vatican to its knees and destroy
all his plans for world domination. Will Ratzinger find Pope
Pius Innocent and the critical documents he possesses before
the truth is revealed?<
from THE LAST POPE
His selection from the House
of Cardinals was revealed to the world by the billows of smoke coming
from the chimney. The new pope never imagined that his election
to the papacy would threaten his belief in the faith he was chosen
to lead. He now saw clearly how the smoke from the ovens of the
concentration camps had been directly caused by bishops, a pope,
and, even more importantly, the teachings of his beloved church.
There was no one inside the
Vatican he dared trust. They had already killed one of their own.
The world was told to believe that John Paul I, in the papacy for
only thirty-three days, had died of natural causes.
If they suspected his intentions,
Pope Pius Innocent knew he would be terminated just as quickly.
Church history taught him that evil committed in the name of perpetuating
the church was deemed acceptable and even admirable. The church
was absolved from all sins when its aim was considered a higher
calling. This twisted concept, which was embedded in his mind since
his earliest days at the seminary, now threatened his own life.
