Archangels: Rise of the Jesuits

Janet M. Tavakoli. Janet M. Tavakoli, $9.99 e-book (324p) ISBN 978-0-9851590-1-6
When a Jesuit is murdered inside the Vatican, Michael Visconte, a special investigator who works crimes involving the Vatican and the Mafia, is called in to investigate. What he discovers are conspiracies within conspiracies—involving Jesuit investments, ties between organized crime and the Vatican, and a secret group inside the Vatican—known as the Archangeli—that is laundering money for massive profits. This fast-paced thriller may be a bit long on the financial jargon (understandable, because Tavakoli has a background in finance), but it doesn't stint on intrigue. Although some of the characters are drawn too broadly and the book's messages simple, there is enough authenticity and adventure to ensure readers will keep turning the pages. And while Visconte's motives are never quite clear and some plotlines insufficiently resolved, Tavakoli has written a solid if uneven thriller
