7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Todd Hamilton, playwright on Dec 31 2006
Format: Paperback
From 1978 to 1983, the Vatican's strategy was to suppress the memory of the liberal 33 day pope and the true circumstances of his mysterious death. Then in 1984, David Yallop's 'In God's Name' did a riveting job in proving this pope was murdered. In 1985, the Vatican recruited clergy in several countries to write brief biographical sketches that painted him out to be a man who ignored the issues of his day and spent his life on his knees. Nothing could be further from the truth, as for twenty years as a bishop he had been a rampaging locomotive running about the Vatican, the courts and Parliament of Italy struggling for human rights for the oppressed; the reason he had risen to the papacy.

There have been several books written about this pope's unwitnessed death, of which I would give only two of them more than one star. Most of the others have been commissioned by the Vatican to spread the misconception that this man died of a heart attack. Only two of them tell the truth. This book and 'Murder in the Vatican' by Lucien Gregoire.

Whereas, no one is going to walk away from either of these books without the firm conviction this man was murdered. There is a difference. Yallop claims he was murdered because of his involvement in the Vatican Bank. Gregoire presents compelling proof that two Opus Dei bishops, who later rose to high rank, masterminded the murders of John Paul and his six closest friends in the fall of 1978. He answers the question: Did his struggle for planned parenthood, the remarried, women, homosexuals, bastards and others cost him his life? Yet, the credit goes mostly to Yallop. Had he not written his book, Gregoire would have never written his book.

Yallop is gold. If he writes it, take it to the bank. After 4 (?) non-fiction offerings on the Vatican, the Holy See must bristle anytime someone named 'David' is mentioned out loud (I hear they frowned when it was announced that 'David' Clarkson signed with the Leafs (--: ) I knew Yallop had his murder mystery solved when Pope JP II passed on, and was laid out 'in state' for public viewing - why was JP I cremated and buried at 4:00 am the morning after his demise? Be prepared to plow through mounds of forensic detail on the financial misdealings of the Vatican Bank, and their nefarious partnerships with mobsters, thugs, and swindlers. Yallop leaves no stone unturned. He is the 'Babe Ruth' of investigative journalism. I am sure the Vatican wishes he had chosen to write about baseball.

This book is a great read.It's compelling,thought provoking and disturbing at certain points.The vatican is a world unto its' own, where many things are shrouded in mystery, in secrecy, in keeping with ancient societies and their long standing traditions.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
David Yallop investigates the circumstances surrounding the untimely death of Pope John Paul and reveals disturbing connections between his enemies in the Vatican and some of the most influential and violent members of the underworld. It is a classic story of "the tyranny of evil men", revealing the worst kind of corruption within the church, while detailing the life of a simple and beautiful man of the cloth who never had aspirations to be pope. It is a crime that this book is out of print, because it is well written and well-researched, and Mr. Yallop is very obviously passionate about his desire to uncover one of most henious cover-ups since the assassination of JFK. A must for any true conspiracy theorist.

Format: Hardcover
This crowded, turbulent book has a cast of characters straight out of the Godfather movie series! It will appeal to conspiracy theorists as well as mystery buffs. As is usual with celebrity bios, dramatic license is exercised frequently throughout. Words are put into the mouths of people at all levels of "Vatican, Inc." and you will be amazed as you follow the sequence of church history after the period covered by this author.
One warning: Every copy I've seen has been in poor condition. I don't think they manufactured this book very well. The pages fall out, especially the pictures. I would have borrowed it from the library if I'd known how poorly the book would stand up to handling.
