Fiction. In his new religious thriller, Richard Gid Powers weaves Church intrigue, corporate crime, religious symbols, mystical theology, ancient history and legend into a high stakes struggle for the soul of the Catholic Church. This fast paced adventure sends Ann Carroll, heir to America’s greatest Catholic fortune, on a quest to reveal the chilling conspiracy behind the murder of the Church’s most saintly bishop. Searching Mt. Athos in Greece, Paris, San Salvador, New York and New Orleans, she discovers crimes at the highest levels of the Catholic hierarchy, rocks the Church to its foundations, and leads a Pentecostal renewal of faith that heals the millennium-long schism between Roman and Greek Catholicism and gives birth to a new Catholic Church.
