City of Secrets: The Startling Truth Behind the Vatican Murders
John Follain (au). On the night of May 4, 1998, in Vatican territory, the bodies of the commander of the Swiss Guard, his wife, & a lance corp. were found in the barracks entrusted with protecting the pope. It was the worst bloodbath to take place in more than a century at the Vatican. Four hours later, the Vatican announced that the lance corp. had shot the couple, then committed suicide in a “fit of madness” brought on by frustration with the unit’s discipline -- a conclusion it reaffirmed after a 9-month inquiry. Follain’s expose shows that this report was a travesty, a tissue of suppositions, contradictions, & omissions. This book reveals how the Vatican, the most secretive autocracy in the world, staged an elaborate plot to obstruct justice, & hide the scandals it dared not confess.
