Product Description
 
David Marr's explosive bestseller, now expanded and fully updated.

In March this year, the nation's most powerful Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, was jailed for child sexual assault. In The Prince, David Marr investigates the man, his career and his ultimate fall. Marr reveals a cleric at ease with power and aggressive in asserting the prerogatives of the Vatican. He charts Pell's response - as a man, a priest, an archbishop and a prince of the church - to the scandal that has engulfed the Catholic world- the sexual abuse of children.

This is the story of a cleric torn by the contest between his church and its victims, and slow to realise that the Catholic Church cannot, in the end, escape secular scrutiny. Behind it all was Pell's own terrible secret, which was uncovered and judged in a trial that convulsed the nation.

The Prince is a portrait of hypocrisy and ambition, set against a backdrop of terrible suffering and an ancient institution in turmoil.David Marr's explosive bestseller, now expanded and fully updated.
