On Pope Watch

This time around I am on constant Pope watch. I’ve looked at the odds and all the stories about the scandals at the Vatican Bank and allegations of inappropriate behaviour and wonder how will they influcence the outcome. Not that I really believe the Papal Conclave could be rigged, but it adds a bit a spice to a plot that I started thinking about more than five years ago.

As I write, the final pages of Stones of Judgment are being prepared for proofing later this week. There will be a new Pope before it’s published. But with so much scandal around the Vatican at the moment, could it be possible that the choice was influenced not by conscience but by coercion?
