The Remnant, by Christy Kenneally
The Pope is dying. In the catacombs of San Domatilla, far beneath the streets of Rome, a militant group of disaffected priests is urged to wage a new inquisition. As Father Michael Flaherty accepts a new appointment to the Vatican department run by African-American cardinal J. Arthur Thomas, he enters a state within a state, where priests vie for influence and power. A former U.S. Marine, Flaherty finds himself in a different kind of war—made all the more deadly because both sides wear the same uniform. In the shadow of the Pope's final days, Michael Flaherty steps into the crosshairs of those who ruthlessly pursue the ultimate prize—the Church itself. They are the Remnant.
