This is a live virtual event with a live audience Q&A. A recording of the event will be available for ticket holders to view through July 31.
From internationally acclaimed #1 New York Times–bestselling author Daniel Silva comes The Order, a riveting new thriller featuring art restorer and legendary spy Gabriel Allon.
In the wake of his friend Pope Paul VII's unexpected death, Gabriel is summoned to Rome by the Holy Father's loyal private secretary, Archbishop Luigi Donati. A billion Catholic faithful have been told that the pope died of a heart attack. Donati, however, has reasons to suspect his master was murdered. The Holy Father was writing a letter addressed to Gabriel in the final hours of his life that began, "While researching in the Vatican secret archives, I came upon a most remarkable book..."
The book is a long-suppressed gospel that calls into question the accuracy of the New Testament’s depiction of one of the most portentous events in human history. The Order of St. Helena will stop at nothing to keep the book out of Gabriel’s hands and is trying to seize control of the papacy. Gabriel’s quest to prove the Order’s conspiracy will take him from the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, to a monastery in Assisi, to the hidden depths of the Secret Archives, and finally to the Sistine Chapel, where he will witness an event no outsider has ever before seen—the sacred passing of the Keys of St. Peter to a newly elected pope.
The Order is a spellbinding novel of friendship and faith in a perilous and uncertain world. And it is still more proof that Daniel Silva is his generation’s finest writer of suspense and international intrigue.
