Signal Boost ~ "A Pius Man" by Declan Finn



Fresh off the press is the newest (technically) book by author Declan Finn. This is an earlier book that has been reedited and re-released by Silver Empire Publishing and finally given the treatment it deserved.

A Pius Man was originally conceived by Mr. Finn as a response to Dan Brown's execrable anti-Catholic thrillers, only done much better than those wastes of ink and paper. This book has a conspiracy involving the Vatican, just like Brown's books. The difference is that this one uses real historical events and not pants-on-head gnostic conspiracy idiocy to steer the plot. It is also, like all of Mr. Finn's novels action packed.

The description is here:

"As the head of Vatican security, Giovanni Figlia must protect a new, African Pope who courts controversy every other day. The Pope’s latest project is to make Pius XII, “Hitler’s Pope,” a saint. Things haven’t gotten better since the Pope employed American mercenary Sean Ryan. 
"Then a body fell onto the Vatican doorstep.

"Mercenaries, spies, beautiful women, international intrigue and ancient secrets – The Pius Trilogy has it all!"

I actually did read and review this book before, possibly before this blog was conceived. I can heartily recommend this one to read from experience. My only quibble with the original was the sometimes spotty editing, but, since this is re-edited, that complaint might already be addressed. Either way, this is a high-octane thriller worth your time.

Declan Finn writes his books with an energy most modern writers lack. This book is no exception to that.


In unrelated news, I'm going to be out of town for most of next week, so there probably won't be an update on this blog. I've been a bit busy with real life recently, as well. I'll try to have a bigger post ready for when I get back.

Thanks for putting up with me!
