Publisher's Summary

Many years after becoming an international best seller, The Devil’s Advocate continues to rate among the best theological fiction of the 20th century. As beautifully written as West’s New York Times best seller, The Shoes of the Fisherman, it was nominated for the National Book Award. Monsignor Blaise Meredith is dying of stomach cancer. On his last mission as canonical inquisitor, he is in southern Italy investigating the life of the mysterious Giacomo Nerone, whom the locals are proclaiming to be a saint. Three people hold the key to understanding the enigmatic life and suspicious death of Nerone, but none of them are talking. Time is running out for Meredith, who hopes to discover not only the truth about the local "saint," but also the meaning of his own life before it’s too late.

    "The abandonment of self we should all seek."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm not Catholic and don't believe in the making of special 'saints' but rather the eternal progression of all man at one level or another and the glorification of quite a few that loose themselves in this life. However, not only did I come to a better understanding and respect of the sainthood process in the Catholic church, but found the author to have explored this whole process with some very human and weak subjects very well. We should all strive to love and understand.


    If you could take any character from The Devil’s Advocate out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    "A beautifully crafted story"

    I loved The Devil's Advocate when I first read it many years ago. I wondered whether my reaction would be different after all this time. Not so. I found it just as moving. If you want fast action, this is not the book for you. If, however, you prefer a moving story, wonderfully written and well read you could do no better than this one. Morris West gets to the heart of the characters, exposing their dilemmas and pain. Do not think, however, that this is a sad book - rather it is one which is quietly uplifting. I highly recommend it to you.
