JACKET NOTES:  RANSOM! It was very simple: steal a group of Vatican treasures, hold them for ransom, take the money, and run. But suddenly, tragically, four vicious I.R.A. gunmen ended up kidnapping the Pope!

With all the breathtaking suspense and pulsating romance that have won him transatlantic acclaim, Jon Cleary has fashioned a novel that stuns--with lightning pace and colorful action a novel in which human jealousy, pride, and passion etch sharp lines across the characters' lives--and in the mind of the reader.
