Robert Harris, Britain’s leading thriller writer, returns to launch the Bath Autumn Book Festival. His new novel, Conclave, swells with intrigue and twisting intensity.

The Pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, one hundred and eighteen cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world’s most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals. Over the next seventy-two hours one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.

Join us for an evening with one of our favourite authors, and lose yourself in his dark, ingeniously crafted and utterly compelling tale of conspiracy and the thirst for power.
