|About the Book|
Adrian Neumann is obsessed with sex, literature and the Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas. After contact with a prostitute, a rare anogenital skin disorder catapults him into a world of bizarre dreams and madness. Dominated by an overpowering sense of a specific calling - to save the Papacy - he escapes from the asylum to fulfill his mission. Once in Rome, while attempting to break into Cardinal Ratzingers office, he is arrested by the Italian police. What secret about the next Pope did Adrian carry with him? Was there any connection between Ratzingers future and the Italian poet, Dante, and what had this to do with Adrians frightening experiences on Ratzingers Island? After Adrian hangs himself, a priest attempts to solve the mystery: was he mad, bad, or perhaps only a visionary?
