Avoid This Book Like the Plague
The problem with slumming it, however, is that sometimes you hit rock bottom, and then the memory of the hangover and the lingering taste of the vomit is enough to pledge you to abstinence and drinking only by means of Holy water on the tongue, until the next cocktail comes along. I suppose the bedroom equivalent is working out how bad your story might seem to the police and the Mrs if the girl you've just put on the morning train ever talked.Anyway, I've just reached that moment with possibly the worst book I've ever read (and I know von Daniken and Donnelly). It's Lucien Gregoire's 'Murder in the Vatican'--a farrago of nonsense about Pope John Paul I which ought to be on every western historical syllabus on the planet as an example of what not to do. Better people than I have written of it's flaws. I have just one suggestion; do not, on any account, go near it.
