“Throughout history the world’s most powerful institutions have always spawned rogue elements, who blur the lines between good and evil in their ‘ends justify the means’ pursuits,” explains Wilk. “In Papal Rogues, I take the readers on an adrenaline-pumping thriller that explores what happens when someone uncovers what was meant to remain hidden.”

While “Papal Rogues” weaves a complex and intriguing tale, Wilk displays his levity and wit by revealing much of the story though the journey of his naive protagonist, Calder McMonagle, who ventures from home in Scotland to California, where he investigates the mysterious death of his computer hacker friend, Michael Squire.
