Conclave Cover

Robert Harris

The Pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, one hundred and eighteen cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals. Over the next seventy-two hours one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.


 An old hand at page-turners – Fatherland, The Ghost – Harris’s latest doesn’t disappoint. The Pope is dead - long live the Pope! But who will he be? Massed cardinals meet in secret conclave to decide. Holy men, but ambitious and treacherous too. The knives are out and twisting – and what a twist at the end!
