Author(s): WEST MORRIS

Second Hand

In the closing years of this Pontiff's reign Morris West tells the story of the next Papal election and of certain characters who may well have a part to play in it. Most important of these is the eminence of the title, Luca, Cardinal Rossini, a man who suffered torture and degradation as a young priest in Argentina, who lived in exile in Rome and was promoted to high office in the Vatican. By his own admission he is a flawed man, but he is still a man of power and a possible candidate for election. There is, however, much more to this novel than Vatican politics. Love and passion, tenderness and intrigue, heady suspense and high drama, all are here.
