Description

A"diabolically good" hacker puts a message on the pope's computer, pleading for him to save a seventeenth-century Spanish church--a church that is killing to defend itself.Although Our Lady of the Tears is but a crumbling baroque building in the heart of Seville, it is also the center of a multilayered mystery--one that will force ecclesiastical sleuth Father Lorenzo Quart to question his loyalty, his vow of chastity, and his faith itself.

Back cover copy

"One of those infrequent whodunits that transcend the genre . . . [with] page-turning pace and vivid characters."--Time
Someone has hacked into the Pope's personal computer, not to spy on the Vatican, but to send an urgent plea for help: save our lady of the tears. The crumbling Baroque church in the heart of Seville is slated for demolition-but two of its defenders have suddenly died. Accidents? Or murders? And was the church itself somehow involved? Father Lorenzo Quart is dispatched to investigate the situation-and stay alive while doing so. Thus begins this sophisticated and utterly suspenseful page-turner. A superb entertainment, The Seville Communion is an intricate thriller that has taken readers by storm.
"An elegant thriller . . .This is a book to be savored. It is as rich and complex as the best of the golden sherries produced in the wineries around Seville."--The Denver Post

Internationally acclaimed author Arturo Perez-Reverte was born in 1951 in Spain, where he lives. His bestselling books have been translated into nineteen languages in thirty countries and have sold millions of copies.
