This is an auction for IN GOD'S NAME: THE MURDER OF POPE JOHN PAUL I, by David Yallop.

"Denounced by the Vatican ... Acclaimed around the world ... Vindicated by the evidence ... Winner of the 1985 Crime writers' Gold Dagger Award for best non-fiction ... Over 5,000,000 copies sold."

"He brings up to date and tells well the story of how the Vatican has conducted its financial affairs. The portayal of little-known John Paul I is also excellently done ... an engrossing and disturbing book."
- The Economist

"A thriller without an ending ... he has surely proved that there is a case to answer."
- The Guardian

"Faniciful and absurd."
- The Vatican review:

"In God's Name contains some of the most explosive and dramatic revelations ever published about the internal affairs of the Vatican. On 28 or 29 September, 1978, Pope John Paul I, Albino Luciani, known as 'the smiling Pope', died only 33 days after his election. David Yallop began his investigation into this death at the request of residents in Vatican City who were disturbed by a cover-up of the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the Pope's body. It is Yallop's conviction that murder was the fate of Albino Luciani, and he presents his evidence in this enthralling book. Over three years of continual and exhaustive research, Yallop uncovered a chain of corruption that linked leading figures in financial, criminal and clerical circles around the world in a conspiracy of awesome proportions. The questions raised remain unanswered, and the frightening accusations are still undisputed."
