From the acclaimed Vatican thriller author Alex Thomas • Available on Amazon (.com || and more) as paperback and Kindle ebook.

A betrayal that has protected humanity from the apocalypse for two millenia. A woman who can read people like an open book. A secret that is stronger than death.

Sister Catherine is different. She can see people’s auras and is a rebel within the Church. Just when she is confronted by her archenemy Cardinal Ciban, her mentor Father Darius dies in a freak accident. Shortly thereafter, the influential Cardinal Benelli commits suicide. But before he does, he reveals to Catherine that her gift is the only thing that can save the pope. To protect Leo XIV, Catherine is planted in the papal household where she discovers an unbelievable secret about the pope and the murdered clergymen. But what does Cardinal Ciban have to do with it?

„It is an old game. One of the oldest of all. It’s called ‚good versus evil’.“
Cardinal Benelli
