Summary
  • The book that propelled Morris West to international fame, The Devil's Advocateis a moving exploration of the meaning of faith, and a vivid portrayal of life in impoverished post-war Calabria
  • In an impoverished village in southern Italy, the enigmatic life and mysterious death of Giacomo Nerone has inspired talk of sainthood. Father Blaise Meredith, a dying English priest, is sent by the Vatican to investigate. As he tries to untangle the web of facts, rumours and outright lies that surround Nerone, The Devil's Advocate reminds us how the power of goodness ultimately prevails over despair. The Devil's Advocate was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the W.H. Heinemann Award of the Royal Society of Literature, and was made into a film. It sold three million copies in its first two years and remains one of Morris West's most popular novels. 'A reading experience of real emotional intensity.' The New York Times Book Review 'An engrossing story, expertly told, about a set of fascinating people.' Chicago Sunday Tribune 'Brilliant and deeply disturbing.' The Daily Telegraph
