If you like history, ancient cities, espionage, religious corruption and intrigue then this book is for you. The story dabbles a bit in art history and lots in world history, specific world war II and the catholic churches involvement in the holocaust. The Confessor is about two less than specific groups of people directory tied to the the Holy See (Vatican City) who have different points of view on what is right for the Roman Curia and the disposition of their involvement in the events of World War II. It's very exciting and worth a listen, without a doubt.
