Kenneth Toomey is an eminent novelist of dubious talent; Don Carlo Campanati is a man of God, a shrewd manipulator who rises through the Vatican to become the architect of church revolution and a candidate for sainthood.
These two men are linked not only by family ties but by a common understanding of mankind's frailties.
In this epic masterpiece, Anthony Burgess plumbs the depths of the essence of power and the lengths men will go for it.
