Note "Published [simultaneously] in France as Sodoma by Éditions Robert Laffont ... 2019"--Title page verso.
Summary "In the Closet of the Vatican exposes the rot at the heart of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church today. This ... investigative writing is based on four years' authoritative research, including extensive interviews with those in power. The celibacy of priests, the condemnation of the use of contraceptives, the cover up of countless cases of sexual abuse, the resignation of Benedict XVI, misogyny among the clergy, the dramatic fall in Europe of the number of vocations to the priesthood, the plotting against Pope Francis - all these issues are clouded in mystery and secrecy. In the Closet of the Vatican is a book that reveals these secrets and penetrates this enigma."--Dust jacket flap.
