In an impoverished village in southern Italy, the enigmatic life and mysterious death of Giacomo Nerone has inspired talk of sainthood.
Father Blaise Meredith, a dying English priest, is sent by the Vatican to investigate. As he tries to untangle the web of facts, rumours and outright lies that surround Nerone, The Devil’s Advocate reminds us how the power of goodness ultimately prevails over despair.
Brilliant and deeply disturbing.
A reading experience of real emotional intensity.
New York Times Book Review
An engrossing story, expertly told, about a set of fascinating people.
