Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of Enigma and Fatherland turns to today's Vatican in a ripped-from-the-headlines novel and gives us his most ambitious, pause-resisting thriller yet - where the power of God is nearly equaled by the ambition of men.

The pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, 118 cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals. Over the next 72 hours, one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.

    I love a good story and I love good facts. Books that combine math, physics, geology, history, archaeology and a story rocks. People too!

    Story
    "Wow! Better than Don Brown."
    If you could sum up Conclave in three words, what would they be?

    Intrigue Inspiration Wow


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conclave?

    The ending :)


    What about Roy McMillan’s performance did you like?

    His voice added depth, emotion and character development to the story. Also very wonderful on the ear.


    If you could take any character from Conclave out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The Pope


    Any additional comments?

    What a great read/listen. I was hooked from the very start. I read and listen to a lot and this is one of the best. How wonderful that I have a new author to get to know by serial reading :)

    Story
    "Excellent book, spoilt by its ending."

    Excellent story, excellent narrator. The story had a excellent flow and wonderful balance of real details and literary drama. Unfortunately I felt it had one plot twist too many. I found the ending unbelievable.

    I love the last 150 years of history. Bully Pulpit and the Wilson biography absolute best!

    "Cannot put it down or turn it off."

    This book is Robert Harris at his absolute best. It offers a rare visit to the inner sanctums of the Vatican and has more suspense than most mystery books! Bravo! Run run run and download it!

    Story
    "Ending was too sensational."

    The novel was absolutely gripping, but there were indications of a hidden anti-Catholic agenda on the part of the author. This was especially apparent in the sensational and unrealistic ending of the book.
