His cabal of fundamentalist zealots now moves quickly to seize the world's largest institution. First, by publicly assassinating the Pope. Next, by replacing him with Caneman. Jackson Schilling enjoys his happy, early retirement. Then, the SEC drafts him. Come on, Jack, one last audit. It's mandatory, after an attempt on the Vatican Bank Chairman's life. But Jackson Schilling is no ordinary auditor.
