Reviews

"This is a shocking exposé. Spies in the Vatican makes a real contribution to a better understanding of the Soviet Union and its nefarious doings that extended well beyond its territory." --John Siber, President Emeritus, Boston University

"Readers will be amazed by this account of the Soviet Union's extensive infiltration of the Catholic Church. A journalist and former army intelligence officer, Koehler explains that the KGB relied on Catholic Eastern European agents, many of whom occupied prominent positions in the church hierarchy, and they listened in as U.S. and European leaders briefed the pope. Included are juicy details of the KGB-backed 1981 assassination attempt on the anti-communist pope. Koehler's book will satisfy readers who remain outraged at Communist perfidy."--Publishers Weekly
