We really do have a very serious problem with fundamentalist Islam, and everybody needs to sink their differences and address it.
The EU is not the problem in this book that it actually is in real life.
Finally, I now recognise a character drawn from life that I didn't back in the Nineties, namely Joesph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XIV. Incidentally, he is as far as I know the only Pope (with the dishonourable exception of Rodrigo Borgia, Alexander VI) who remains habitually referred to by his name.

Many don't know Peter De Rosa wrote earlier under the Pen Name, Neil Boyd. His earlier series, Bless Me Father, was turned into a successful PBS (English) series and that video series is available through Acorn distributors. The books can be found here from used book sellers.
Patrick's solution of the third-world's poverty is a lesson in simplicity worthy of reflection and emulation!
If only Jimmy Stewart could have played this role!
Unfortunately, the "surprise ending" in the last few pages completely shatters the aforementioned good feelings, and instills a depression that hasn't been matched since "Apocalypse Now."
If you truly want to make someone's Friday and Saturday but destroy their Sunday, hand them "Pope Patrick".
