This story continues the story of Dr Cloe Lejeune, her son and friends from the Vatican, following on from her adventures in the Judas the Apostle story. Many follow-on novels disappoint; not this one! I was a little unsure how the story could develop, as the first story seemed to come to such a well rounded conclusion, but develop it certainly did. Despite being a follow-on novel, it could easily be read as a stand alone novel, though I have to say I was really pleased to be able to read the first book and pass straight on to this one. Once again, I was sent a copy for review from Netgalley. This story gived Cloe a love interest – do we trust him or not?? She continues her investigations with J.E., the Monsignor – who we now know that we can trust – and a new Vatican colleague, Sergio. To say much more would spoil the story, but I can promise that it’s every bit as exciting as Judas the Apostle, just as complex and full of surprises. I would highly recommend it, and honestly think it would make a brilliant film. Thanks again to netgalley for broadening my reading horizons.
