Amanda Prantera

Spoiler

JACKET NOTES:  Amanda Prantera's gripping new novel takes us to the wilder shores of adolescence and Catholicism. It is a heady brew of testosterone, rising intellectual sap, heroism, madness and menace.

It was after his friend Adam had died mysteriously that Ben started to hear whiffling noises in the night. The two noviciate priests had roomed side by side at their seminary in Rome, the cool, sardonic Adam becoming a mentor to the younger Ben. Did Adam jump from the parapet, Ben wonders, or was he pushed?

Ben discerns that the nocturnal whiffling is accompanied by a frantic quest through Adam's computer. Meanwhile, he finds three discs taped underneath a shelf in Adam's cupboard, and gradually he is lead into the terrifying labyrinth of his friend's legacy...Ben can hardly believe that Adam can have become so caught up in the arcane prophecies of the Antichrist - or Spoiler - but now Ben too is prompted into desperate clandestine action.
