This is definitely my favorite thread of the Ring of Fire series. Fun characters, politics I have no trouble grokking, enough action but not too much - it just fires on all cylinders for me. If you liked The Galileo Affair, this will work fine for you. ( )

As Rome burns the USE embassy and the committee of correspondence look for a way out. A really fast paced enjoyable book. ( )

Might is right, right? Only if it's canon, um, cannon. How _do_ you get your point across in the 17th century? Paraphrasing a politician of the 20th century, you speak softly and carry a big stick (or cannon).

Book description
Rome, 1635, and the members of Grantville's diplomatic team, headed by Sharon Nichols, are making scant headway now that it has become politically inexpedient for Pope Urban VIII to talk to them.   Sharon doesn't mind, she has a wedding to plan.  Frank Stone has moved to Rome and is attempting to bring about the revolution one pizza at a time.  Cardinal Borja is gathering votes to bring the Church's reformers to a halt in their tracks, on the orders of the King of Spain.

Meanwhile, trouble is brewing in the streets, shadowy agitators are stirring up trouble and Spain's armies are massed across the border in the Kingdom of Naples, and Cardinal Barberini wants the pamphleteers to stop slandering him.  Cardinal Borja has more ambitions than even his masters in Madrid know about, and has the assistance of Spain's most notorious secret agent to bring about his sinister designs.   It looks like it's going to be a long, hot summer.  [from the jacket]
