Description de l'ouvrage

22 janvier 2013 Archangels
WHEN CONTROL OF THE VATICAN IS AT STAKE--MONEY TALKS, AND NOBODY PLAYS FAIR. Italian intelligence specialist Michael Visconte is shocked by the brutal murder of a Jesuit priest, who turns out to be a hedge fund manager for the Vatican. The victim, Father Matteo Pintozzi, achieved an unblemished record of extraordinary returns. The next day, Michael is visited by two Jesuits who ask him to investigate the murder, and Michael soon finds himself in the middle of a struggle for power and control over the finances of the Vatican. Unfortunately, his lucky break--one that should provide critical evidence--blurs the line between good and evil and not only endangers the lives of Michael and the Jesuits, but also imperils the lives of his wife and children. From the Back Cover "A word of advice Mr. Visconte. This is Vatican business. It's dangerous to forget that." Michael Visconte never forgot the Vatican Bank's $250 million payoff to the defrauded depositors of Banco Ambrosiano or the murder of Roberto Calvi. The fresh corpse at his feet told him it was far from over. He thought he already knew the consequences of double-crossing the Vatican. But that was before he agreed to help the Jesuits blackmail the Pope... "This fast-paced thriller...doesn't stint on intrigue...enough authenticity and adventure to ensure readers will keep turning the pages." PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Crime and corruption shake up the Catholic church. 4 décembre 2012
Par Espina Juan Carlos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I found this book very easy to read and engaging; chapters go by flying and the reader is left wanting for more. The author paints a controversial picture of the Catholic church and the way it deals with its finances and political power while trying to stay current in modern society. Although labeled as fiction, some of the stories are based on real events summarized at the end of the book. I give credit to the author for developing a story that merges facts with fiction and even a taste of sensuality. One criticism, too short.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book! 4 février 2013
Par Krysi Joseph aka boekverslaafde - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
When I read about Archangels, I thought it would be along the lines of Dan Brown's DaVinci Code. But once I started reading it, I found that it wasn't, really, like it at all. Both stories talk about the Vatican, and there is murder involved. That's where the similarities end.
Which, to me, is really a good thing. Janet Tavakoli stated at the beginning of the book that while some places, people, and business/corporations are real, they are used fictitiously in the book, except where documented historical events are referenced. I believe she has put more fact in there than what I originally thought when reading.
Janet is very thorough when describing history, and the Society of Jesus. While some of the descriptions may not be REAL, she made sure we have all the facts and can understand what is going on. Archangels was well written and thought out, and I enjoyed reading it.

Why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5:

1) There were a couple times where I found it hard to get through, it seemed too slow moving for me.

2) I thought it could have used another murder or two, in my opinion the bloodier it is, the better it is to read.

3) While she was great at describing everything else, Janet really didn't go into much detail of the main character, and his family. I feel she should have gone more in depth with them, as I didn't really feel connected to any of them. I didn't feel like I knew them, or care about them, really.

One of the things that I truly loved about the book:

I am usually able to pick up on the foreshadowing and once I meet all the characters, I'm pretty good about figuring out how the book is going to end, who was the murderer/culprit/etc. While reading Archangels, I thought I had it figured out...then with 33 pages left in the book, I thought I'd discovered I was right. ... then a few pages after that, I found I was incredibly WRONG. I love it when books have a twist from the direction I was thinking!

Besides those 3 things, I found this book enjoyable to read and look forward to reading any other fictional books Janet may release. As for the physical book itself, I received a trade paperback (they're taller and usually thinner than the standard mass market paperback). The book was well bound, and the paper was a lot thicker than you usually see in paperbacks. Nice and heavy duty paper, harder to rip, and will hold up better over the years.

Well written, entertaining and informative. The author is an expert in her field, but chose to also write a fictional novel based on her insights into the Vatican.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 novel idea 21 novembre 2012
Par Joan D - Publié sur Amazon.com

Very intriguing concept, all the better cause it is fact-based.  A good main plot, but would have been more interesting with a few sub-plots.  Didn‘t need the very descriptive sex scenes.
