From the Back Cover:

A superior novel, intricately worked out at several levels of  human and spiritual quest . . . beautiful and impassioned.”—Commonweal

“A reading experience of real emotional intensity.”—The New York Times

“A unique cloak-and-dagger drama of the human soul.”—Saturday Review
 

The church wants to know the truth about Giacomo Nerone—possibly a martyr, certainly a military deserter and father of an illegitimate child. Can this man be a saint? The Vatican sends Fr. Blaise Meredith, a mortally ill English priest, to an impoverished post-war Italian village to untangle the web of facts, rumors, lies, and myths that surround the life and death of the mysterious Nerone. The Devil’s Advocate, Morris West’s best-selling novel, is a vivid story of spiritual frailty, tenacious faith, and the power of goodness to prevail over despair.
