Publisher's Summary

The Fifth Gospel by Ian Caldwell is a literary thriller that takes place in 2004 at the Vatican, the chief residence of the Catholic pope in Italy. The novel follows the aftermath of the murder of Ugolino Nogara, a Vatican museum curator.

Brothers Alex and Simon Andreou are both priests. Alex is a Greek Orthodox priest and Simon is a Roman Catholic priest as well as Vatican diplomat in the secretariat. Their opposing religious affiliations place the brothers on opposite sides of a centuries-old feud between the two churches.

Alex is married. But his wife, Mona, left him and their son, Peter, when the boy was a baby.

Ugolino Nogara is planning an art exhibit in the Vatican museum. A week before the exhibit is to open, Ugo is found dead. The discovery is reported by both Alex and Simon. That same night a man breaks into Alex's apartment. Peter and the nun who cares for him hide and escape unharmed.

    "Not what I expected!"

    The novel itself was very good and I had hoped that this book was actually going to give additional background and analysis of some of the historical elements in the book. It did not! Instead this was a full summary of the book repeating many of the points several times. The reader mispronounced many words to the point of distraction. If you haven't read the book do NOT read this first because it will give the whole book away. This was a waste of money, just glad it wasn't very expensive.
