Listen to a sample
Thriller of the year . . . with a plot so serpentine and sinuous that I could not bear to put it down.
A real page-turner, with a great twist in the final pages.
Harris’ superlative skill at depicting power politics makes this an irresistibly gripping papal page-turner.
‘I have been waiting for most of my life for Robert Harris to write a novel that is not gripping, insightful and entertaining. I am waiting still. His latest, Conclave, is superb.
Finishing this splendid and intelligent story, as with all great fiction, brings an acute sense of loss.
