MAYDAY FOR A POPE!

It's spring in Burgundy. The flowers are out and so are the cardinals! That is, the cardinals of Pope Urban's renegade papacy, now on the run from the Vatican's would-be usurper Borja.

Fortunately, Urban has help from those indomitable modern West Virginians thrown back in time during the Ring of Fire cataclysm. He can rely upon Cardinal-Protector Larry Mazzare's theological savvy, Sharon Nichols' medical skills, and her husband Ruy Sanchez's keen-eyed experience as a body-guard-in-chief. And even though Urban has a new Papal Guard in the form of Owen Rowe O'Neill's Wild Geese, up-time leader Mike Stearns has loaned the Pope a contingent of the Hibernian Battalion-just in case.

Which is prudent, since Urban and his peace initiative are not merely at risk from Borja's assassins. There is another, deadlier team of professional killers in town, directed by the man who almost killed the Pope before: lethal Spanish mastermind Pedro Dolor.

Dolor hasn't come to confess murder - he's come to commit a cardinal sin. Several of them, in fact!
