Michaelmas Week 4
‘in the vatican everything is confidential and nothing is secret’
Following the death of the Pope a man is elected who the cardinals believe can stop the spread of corruption in the Vatican. Thirty days later he is dead. No official investigation is launched, no autopsy is performed and cardinal Benelli watches as the press release is secretly distorted. Benelli has the power to ensure the death is properly investigated but only by surrendering his last chance of becoming pope. Years later, beyond justice, ambition and friendship all that remains is his last confession.
A thrilling tail of rivalry, intrigue and faith. The Last Confession takes us inside the Vatican to uncover the events surround the death of ‘the smiling pope’
