The Gospel of Thomas

Book Description (Annotation)

The pope is dying. After Simon Mulangu, the Congolese cardinal, sends a mysterious message, President Thomas Bremanger orders U.S. intervention in the upcoming papal election. Bill Never, the attorney general, and top players at the NSC, NSA, CIA, State Department and West Wing assemble a special unit to carry out covert actions. But as turf wars erupt between team members, a seductive intern reports unguarded details to her Chinese handlers. The country’s interests, the lives of President Bremanger and Cardinal Mulangu, and the fate of reunification of the Christian Church depend on the success of American operatives and the sacred conclave of Roman Catholic cardinals.
