What does the Vatican do when a church set to be close starts to kill? Miracle, possession or foul play? This is the beginning of a sticky investigation for the Vatican's envoy, the dashing priest who must fight off romantic overtures, villains and the local catholic establishment to get to the truth. In keeping true to his style of storytelling, Perez-Reverte brings to life old Seville, the streets, the people. He draws the reader into a probably false sense of comfort and delight. Beware but do enjoy the ride, it's a good one.
