Paperback / Softback




The revised edition of the searing investigation into the murder of Pope John Paul I that has sold more than 6 million copies.

Only thirty-three days after his election, Pope John Paul I died in strange circumstances. Almost immediately rumours of a cover-up began to circulate around the Vatican.

In his researches David Yallop uncovered an extraordinary story: behind the Pope’s death lay a dark and complex web of corruption within the Church that involved the Freemasons, Opus Dei, the Mafia and the murder of the ‘Pope’s Banker’ Roberto Calvi.

When first published in 1984 In God’s Name was denounced by the Vatican yet became an award-winning international bestseller. In this new edition, Yallop brings the story up to date and reveals new evidence that has been long buried concerning the truth behind the Vatican cover-up. This is a classic work of investigative writing whose revelations will continue to reverberate around the world.
