"A thriller ... ÝYallop has surely proved that there is a case to answer."

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.
On the heels of the sudden and unwitnessed death of the youngest pope to die in four hundred years, Zottola & Pena published `They Have Murdered the Pope: Operation Pigeon' driven by what was at the time the most obvious motive for murder: John Paul's threat of economic movement toward Marxism in the west and liberal reformation within the Church. The book--a novel--came remarkably close to the truth in its fictional creation of `Operation Pigeon'--a blend of curia cardinals and capitalistic powers and the disappearance of Vatican Bank money in Central America.
In 1984, Yallop made the case for murder. In `In God's Name' he offers the hypothesis: three archbishops--Marcinkus, Cody and Villot--conspired in the Vatican bank scandal to the benefit of three Mafia types--Calvi, Sindona and Gelli. John Paul was murdered because an audit he ordered of the Vatican bank would have exposed transactions which exploded in the press four years later as the `Great Vatican Bank Scandal'--the Vatican transferred hundreds of millions of dollars to Nicaragua (believed to have gone to the Contras to overthrow the communist Sandinistas government). Much to his credit, Yallop revived the liberal identity of the 33-day Pope particularly as it concerned itself with contraception; something the Vatican had gone out of its way to annihilate.Read more ›
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.
