Synopsis: An IRA conspiracy to steal Vatican treasures with the help of an Irish-American journalist, working as a Vatican press spokesman goes awry. The Pope, on a nocturnal visit to the galleries, becomes a more attractive prize. Christopher Kay is the consummate narrator for a wide-ranging cast of multi-continental characters. Penny whistle and Irish drum signal the end of each side, heightening the tension in this intriguing and thought-provoking story.
