Item description for The Last Confession by Morris L. West...
West's last novel (he died at his desk, at its completion) is a strong story of the philosopher and heretic Giordano Bruno, who was burnt by the Inquisition for his heresy. A major release!
From the Foreword by Thomas Keneally:
"Bruno was that perilous thing, a free spirit, and suffered death for his right to certain concepts. I knew from conversations with Morris that Giordano Bruno was a soul mate, someone with whose life history Morris' identified, even though Morris possessed a somewhat less strident temperament than Bruno's. "Failed priest," as Morris has Bruno declare in this tale, "fugitive monk, magus with a box of conjuring tricks, boaster, prevaricator, would-be torchbearer trudging through his own darkness, garrulous in dialogue, viperous in debate."

Morris west was one of the best and this last one proves the point. This is his last book and he has proved himself yet again as the master of vatican suspense. Many of his books are superb and modelled after part fiction and part christian history.
