By L. D. Godfrey TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 28 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought 'The Devil Will Come' by Glenn Cooper on a bit of a whim. I'm not a big fan of conspiracy type novels, I read the product description and thought it might prove to be an interesting choice,considering the eminent election of a new Pope. I also thought it would be a Da Vinci Code type of book, but instead of Dan Brown, I got Stephen King. I also found out more about Christopher Marlowe than I really wanted to know. The novel moves from 1st century Rome, to Elizabethan England, to present day. The main character Elisbetta (archaeologist/nun) has been summoned to examine strange skeletons found in the catacombs after a cave-in. This is where the strange comes in.The skeletons belong to a cult/race (the book never explains this),a secret society that has been causing havoc in the church and the world for centuries. Cooper does a great job keeping the novel on track,he doesn't waste time or effort on multiple sub plots. The plot itself is fairly straight forward, Elisbetta finds out what this group is up to and together with her policemen brother and sister, father and assorted characters race to prevent the threat. All this time in the background,you have the cardinals and church hierarchy gathering to elect a new Pope. For the most part, I enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed the history and Cooper's way weaving fact with fiction. The novel was interesting but the characters could use a little work.

Cooper Comes Up With Another Winner Dec 6 2013
By Charles Ferreira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read all of Cooper's books. He does a very good job of establishing an historical basis for the modern day action in his stories. In this book events in first century A.D. Rome are the catalyst for a conspiracy against Christians and Catholics in particular. I can't remember another book where the antagonists major reason for being was to create and profit from chaos. Its a good read for those interested in early Rome, Elizabethan England or conspiracies against the catholic church.

Another riveting tale by Glenn Cooper. Oct. 2 2013
By Daniel Barbier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Another riveting tale by Cooper. As with his Will Piper series, this stand-alone novel mixes history with fiction, in a very suspenseful way. Highly recommended.

A good bestseller March 2 2014

Mind blowin' Thriller! Nov. 8 2014
By Mamabear Cherei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Devil Will Come' takes a new twist on the Malachy prophecy! omg!! I was just blown away by Glenn Cooper coming up with such a refreshing NEW angle and plot! Without giving away any spoilers.. it sure gave me something to think about.. The last Pope.. is supposed to be (according to the prophecy).. our current Pope. Reading this story.. and following what is actually occurring in our world.. well.. it's enough to make you wonder.. if Mr. Cooper isn't psychic as well. I pray.. he's NOT. Superbly written and very fresh!

For those who've waited for another author to come along and sweep you off your feet, and onto the reading couch!! Here it is!

Definetely don't like. July 25 2013
By Andrei Filotti - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The book was delivered in time and I have no complaints regarding the supplier.

As far as the book is concerned, it is really bad. The plot is bad, it is not well written and there are few chances I will ever order another book by the same author
