In this fully documented minute-by-minute account of John Paul I's last hours during the evening of September 28th, 1978 and the events that followed, David Yallop reveals how the intricate web of Vatican lies was fabricated and explores the motives and opportunities of the six powerful men who stood at the center of a deadly conspiracy. Bishop Marcinkus, Cardinal Villot, Roberto Calvi, Licio Gelli, the Sicilian banker Michele Sindona, and Cardinal Cody of Chicago, the head of the richest arch-diocese in the world, all had a great deal to fear if the papacy of John Paul I continued. Yallop began his investigation into this death at the request of certain individuals resident in Vatican City who were disturbed by a cover-up of the true circumstances surrounding the discovery of the Pope's body. During his continual and intensive research over the next three years, Yallop was to discover - as had Albino Luciani during his brief thirty-three days in Papcy - that a chain of corruption existed, linking leading figures in financial, political, criminal and clerical circles around the world in a conspiracy. The new Pope had embarked on a revolution and had ordered an investigation into the Vatican Bank, specifically into the methods employed by its President, Bishop Paul Marcinkus and the laundering of Mafia money. It is also revealed that a number of clerics within the Vatican belong to an unconventional, illegal branch of Freemasonry called P2 - controlled by 'the Puppet Master' Licio Gelli - which extended far beyond Italy in its accumulation of wealth and power. And perhaps causing even greater alarm within the Vatican, was the fact that Pope John Paul I was planning to adopt a liberal position on the subject of birth control and had planned to receive a Congressional delegation from the State Department in Washington to discuss population control. It is Yallop's conviction that murder was the fate of Pope John Paul I, Albino Luciani. Bookseller Inventory # 70014

Synopsis: Denounced by the Vatican as 'fanciful and absurd', this classic of investigative reporting is now available in a new, revised edition. Yallop's ground-breaking investigation into Pope John Paul I's death just 33 days after his election is a tale of intrigue,murder and corruption. It reveals the dark heart of the Vatican via a trail of evidence that connects the papacy, the masons, Opus Dei and the mafia.

About the Author: David Yallop is a highly regarded 'seeker of justice'; he has investigated, written and over-turned opinion with every book he has written. In 1983 he published In God's Name, which revealed the amazing truth behind the murder of John Paul I.
