The Malta Exchange
The Malta Exchange. Fans of this series are those readers most likely to be patient enough to stick with the complexity in this novel. A pope has died, and there’s a scheme to get a particular person chosen as pope at the conclave. The complexity comes in the form of a secret document kept by the Knights of Malta, purported to go back to Emperor Constantine and containing material threatening to the Catholic church. There’s also evidence about indiscretions by various cardinals that have been documented and are planned to be used to secure votes for the person who wants to be pope. Various secret agents are at work, and Cotton Malone is in the middle of another mess. If you have any questions about how Cotton fares, you’ve never read anything in this series.
