There are a couple of side stories going on with Donnie that make this an even more enjoyable and complex storyline. This is a unique mystery as there really are no clues about an important member of the completion of the crime, if there even is a crime! Ha! I'm trying not to give away any more of the story! Just a comment that if you're use to figuring out who all the bad guys are, you may not be able to this time! Love that!
Lots of great characters, lots of suspense, some fun, twists and turns, and a lot of information about the Catholic Church combine to make this a really engrossing read!
Starting with the shocking suicide of the Pope in a bathroom in NYC, or could it be a homicide? NYPD veteran detective Mike Beecher has his doubts. Doubts that are being politicized by not only the Vatican but the U.S.government, but why?
This book is filled with everything from a family's tragic struggles, international intrigue, and a basic but comprehensive look at the workings of the Catholic church.
I'm not Catholic, but a blatant suicide by the Pope seems ludicrous; hanging would be a foolish way to stage the act. That the US government wants to write off the Pope's NYC death as suicide seems like a signal of a high level conspiracy and perhaps collusion. Yet this doesn't enter any investigator's mind.
Further, an effective assassination would be more subtle, yet could be discovered to be murder in the investigation. A sensible demise for a Pope, even in perfect health, could be staged as a heart attack, hoping it might not warrant an investigation, though the enticing title would be lost. Or an accidental overdose when the Pope has no actual prescriptions might first be construed as a suicide. Either way, discovery that it was murder could still occur.
Lots of potential and an excellent premise make it worth 4½☆ despite the plotting defects but another ¼☆ off for all the typos; nonetheless, competently written.
