Madonna Files. Stephen Ryan. 2013. This thriller has it all: Marian apparitions, a missing Russian tanker, Vatican intrigue, and a handsome priest. Two factions in the church, one that accepts the Medjugorie visions and the other that doesn’t are jockeying to control who becomes the next pope. It necessary to locate the missing files of John Paul II that may contain proof that the third secret of Fatima will prove that the Medjugorie visions are credible so that the “wrong” group won’t take over the Vatican. Father Dan, a handsome young priest has been chosen to locate the files. Carl Beckett is determined to get his hands on the Madonna Files and is working behind the scenes to stop Father Dan so his faction can control the Vatican. He is also the owner of a missing Russian cargo ship filled with nuclear weapons that is heading toward Iran. He plans to get the U.S. to blow up the ship to stop World War III! This book was less than 300 pages so there was no room for character development, detailed descriptions of the Marian apparitions or anything else for that matter. I am not sure it make a lot sense to anyone who wasn’t aware of the controversies involving the apparitions and the different ideas about the papacy and church doctrine that abound within the church. It was disappointing. I’d love to see what James Lee Burke or even Ken Follett would do with such a plot! ( )
