Summary

From one of the 20th century's most acclaimed and popular authors.

Iron-fisted Pope Leo XIV emerges from open-heart surgery with the chilling realisation that his reforms have devastated the Church.

As he struggles to overcome the policies he himself put in place, he must battle enemies from within the Vatican, as well as Islamic terrorists determined to assassinate him. Amid political intrigue and counterespionage, his brilliant Surgeon, Salviati, becomes a target, too, along with Salviati’s beautiful mistress, Tove, and her fragile daughter, as the plot builds to a dramatic climax. 

Lazarus completes Morris West’s best-selling Vatican trilogy, following The Shoes of the Fisherman and The Clowns of God. It can also stand alone as a gripping exploration of Church politics in a world of crises.
