Synopsis

"Dead Bishops Don't Lie"
Saas Fee ski resort, Switzerland, 7.00 am March 6, 2005

A group of skiers, anxious to get on the first cable car up the mountain, instead find themselves staring in horror at the half- naked body of a man, his outstretched arms tied crucifixion-like to the cable. A plaque bearing an obscure message hangs from his neck. Later, the victim is identified as Monsignor Antoine Salvador, Archbishop of Lyon.
The Swiss investigators, mystified by such a bizarre and gruesome crime, call Interpol for help. Thierry Dulac, a caustic inspector with an enviable track record, gets the nod.
Dulac has barely begun his investigation when the assassins strike again: the body of Monsignor Alberto Conti, Archbishop of Milan, is found hanging from a pergola near Stresa, Italy. A similar plaque hangs from his neck. With little to go on but the plaques, Dulac turns to Karen Dawson, world-renowned mythologist, to help decipher their messages.
His search for the killers leads him from the hushed corridors of the Vatican and the quiet luxury of a British Marchioness’s chateau, to the dank prison cells of Moscow’s Lubyanka prison. Struggling through a labyrinth of duplicity and Vatican intrigues, Dulac uncovers an astounding conspiracy fueled by dirty money, blackmail and deadly ambition. He’s just realized the enormity of what he’s discovered when a hit man strafes the windshield of his Renault.
In his smart thriller inspired by the likes of Grisham, Crichton and Le Carré, international business lawyer André K. Baby has assembled a host of intriguing characters and woven them into the fabric of a multi- layered, fascinating plot. The tension keeps rising until the final, mind-blowing chapter.
