The Vatican Conspiracy by Peter Hogenkamp was an Advanced Reader’s Copy from Netgalley. This is the first in a new series and the author was also new to me. The book is most definitely in the thriller subgenre and is action packed.
This book has a ridiculous premise, a practicing priest who stops a terrorist attack at the Vatican. READ this book despite the ridiculous sounding premise, it is an amazing thriller packed with a fantastic story, memorable characters, and extremely well written. Every single page is a delight to read. so much so that I reread the book immediately just to ensure I didn’t miss something vital.
The book grabs the reader from the first chapter and doesn’t let go. Characters are memorable, writing is amazing, and the action seriously doesn’t let up. The political intrigue within the Vatican seems especially spot-on these days as well.
Five stars out of five stars and Father Venetti is welcome for a drink anytime he wants. I will be adding this series to my must read list and I would never hesitate to pick up anything writing by the author.
