Nell'Archivio Segreto Vaticano sono conservati mille anni di documenti: la confessione di Galileo, l'ultima lettera di Maria Stuarda, il trattato firmato tra la Chiesa e Napoleone Bonaparte a Tolentino, la stesura originale del terzo segreto di Fatima... Ma perché il pontefice Clemente XV trascorre lunghe ore nell'archivio per riemergerne poi angosciato e afflitto? La risposta forse sta nella missione che il papa decide di assegnare a monsignor Colin Michener, suo segretario e amico di lunga data. Michener dovrà consegnare una missiva a padre Tibor, al quale Giovanni XXIII aveva affidato il compito di tradurre dal portoghese il terzo segreto di Fatima. La preoccupazione si trasforma in terrore quando l'anziano prete viene ucciso.

Odličan autor, Knjige mu se čitaju u dahu... Za one koji vole Sidnija Šeldona, Džejmsa Patersona, Skota Marijanija i slične autore... :)
WOW what a faboulas novel. It is a story of the 112 Pope told to be the last Pope and judger of the masses. The third Secret is revealed from the Lady Mary of Fatima. It reveals some very troublesome things for the Church. It condems the Church for being way off base on a lot of doctrine. There are
Viata la Vatican nu e usoara: intrigi, secrete de nu mai incap in Vatican si nu in ultimul rand aventuri amoroase. Astfel,ajunge monseniorul Colin Michener in Romania, unde va cauta traducerea celui de-al treilea secret, unul dintre mesajele lasate de fecioara Maria.
I loved Steve Berry's first two books, but was very disappointed by this one. So much so, that I haven't read any of his books that have come out since then. It's your normal Da Vinci Code style of suspense and mystery, and it isn't as if most of the book itself is bad. It's the end that made me ang Leggi tutto
Yikes. Forbidden romances with priests, Catholic end-times (but not really), megalomania, divine righteousness, and the war between reform and tradition all crash pell-mell into each other in this wannabe political thriller (with an all-priest cast) that can't quite shake the conspiracy craze starte Leggi tutto
This is exactly what I am looking for in a novel! Good pacing, a compelling story about concepts that are mysterious and bigger than any one person, with interesting characters that do not get too bogged down in their own psychology. It will no doubt be hated by anyone who subscribes to organized re Leggi tutto
I enjoy sweeping thrillers that involve a lot of characters and locations. Steve Berry has, for the past four or five years, been kind of in the middle of my list of liked authors for this type of book. The Third Secret jumped him up a couple of notches. I'm not entirely sure why, but this book seeme Leggi tutto
Mr. Berry acknowledges that he was raised Catholic and has done considerable research on the secrets surrounding the visions at Fatima as well as the politics and inner machinations of the Vatican. He has crafted an exciting, albeiit wildly improbable, novel containing all sorts of intrigue includi
For an adventure novel this one was somewhat short on adventure. No real investment in characters because the author didn't really give us a character to care about. Also the stories final message came off as forced and heavy handed. Disappointing.
