Two forthcoming books, by authors who figured prominently in the “Vatileaks II” scandal, threaten to cause more headaches for Vatican officials, with sensational promises of exposing corruption.
Francesca Chaouqui, who was convicted of conspiracy to leak secret
Vatican documents but given a suspended sentence, has written a book
entitled In the Name of Peter, in which she says that she will
“tell the whole story” about the effort to reform Vatican finances, and
provide documentation of wasteful spending and bureaucratic intrigue.
The Chaouqui book is scheduled for publication in early February.
Emiliano Fittipaldi, the Italian journalist who wote a book based on
the leaked documents, has now completed a new work, simply entitled Lust,
in which his publisher says that he will “lift the veil on the shocking
reality of sex scandals involving priests, bishps, and cardinals from
around the world.”
The book will be released on January 19.
