His plots always involve a bit of humor, but this one goes beyond the usual. Enjoyed the change...

Very funny, tongue-in-cheek tale about the Pope's retreat in Gandolfo.

This book was hilarious! I had read Robert Ludlum years ago and found his books to be amazingly interesting and complex, revealing an intimate knowleldge of how governments and their agencies worked with a level of understanding that I have never found in another writer. But THIS BOOK? He took everything he knew about all of the above and wrote the funniest satire I have ever read.
