***SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER***

The Pope is dead.

Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, one hundred and eighteen cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election.

They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals.

Over the next seventy-two hours one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.

Review quote

"Harris' superlative skill at depicting power politics makes this an irresistibly gripping papal page-turner." * Sunday Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR * "Thriller of the year . . . with a plot so serpentine and sinuous that I could not bear to put it down." -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail BOOKS OF THE YEAR * "`I have been waiting for most of my life for Robert Harris to write a novel that is not gripping, insightful and entertaining. I am waiting still. His latest, Conclave, is superb." -- Ben Macintyre * The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR * "A real page-turner, with a great twist in the final pages." -- Libby Purves * The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR * "Finishing this splendid and intelligent story, as with all great fiction, brings an acute sense of loss." -- Richard Susskind * The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
