Guest blogger - Peter Hogenkamp

A very warm welcome to my guest blogger - Peter Hogenkamp. Peter is the author of the Marco Vanetti series, and with a new book series scheduled for release in a few months time, now is a great time to discover the first book in the Marco Vanetti series, The Vatican Conspiracy. Father Marco Venetti is a Jesuit priest from Monterosso al Mare, shepherding over a quiet parish overlooking the Ligurian Sea. His biggest concerns—until the evening Elena shows up in his confessional—are the empty pews in his 800-year-old church and the way he ‘stared at her creamy olive skin, burned to perfection by the Mediterranean sun.’ Elena is a fisherman with empty nets and a conscience brimming over with guilt, who reveals she is involved in a plot to assassinate the pope and attack Vatican City. Marco urges her to go to the police, but her daughter is being held captive and she is unwilling; the seal of the confessional binds Marco and he is unable. Seeing no other way to stop the attack on Pope John Paul III, the first black pope in over two millennia, Marco steals aboard her fishing trawler toting his only weapon, a well-used speargun. He kills the terrorists and rescues Elena's daughter, but Marco’s turmoil is only beginning.
