‘An incisive discussion of the character and personality of Pell’ —Jack Waterford, The Canberra Times


‘Marr makes good use of his skills as an investigative reporter as he looks at Pell's role in the scandals and analyses the Church's struggle to save its reputation … This is outstanding long-form journalism.’ —Walkley Magazine, Best Non-Fiction Book of 2014

‘Descriptively superb. This is where David Marr rivals Lytton Strachey’ —Peter Craven, The Weekend Australian
