Cabal: An Aurelio Zen Mystery (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)by Michael Dibdin
Synopses & Reviews
In Cabal, master crime writer Michael Dibdin plunges us into a murky world of church spies, secret societies, cover-ups, and mistaken identities.
An apparent suicide in the Vatican may in fact have been a muder conducted by a centuries-old cabal within The Knights of Columbus. A discovery among the medieval manuscripts of the Vatican Library leads to a second death, Zen travels to Milan, where he faces a final, dramatic showdown. Meanwhile, Zen's lover, the tantalizing Tania, is conducting her own covert operations--which could well jeopardize everything Zen has worked for. Richly textured, wickedly entertaining, Cabal taps the mysterious beauty of Italy in a thriller that challenges our beliefs about love, allegiance, history, and power--and the lengths to which we will go to protect them against the truth.
Master crime writer Dibdin plunges Aurelio Zen into a nether world of Church spies, secret societies, cover-ups, and mistaken identities when a death at the Vatican arouses suspicion of a centuries-old cabal within The Knights of Malta.
