This prize-winning novel of a fugitive priest in Mexico is quite simply “Graham Greene’s masterpiece” (John Updike, The New York Review of Books). In the Mexican state of Tabasco in the 1930s, all vestiges of Catholicism are being outlawed by the government. As churches are razed, icons are banned, and the price of devotion is execution, an unnamed member of the clergy flees. He’s known only as the “whisky priest.” Beset by heretical vices, guilt, and an immoral past, he’s torn between self-destruction and self-preservation. Too modest to be a martyr, too stubborn to follow the law, and too craven to take a bullet, he now travels as one of the hunted—attending, in secret, to the spiritual needs of the faithful. When a peasant begs him to return to Tabasco to hear the confessions of a dying man, the whisky priest knows it’s a trap. But it’s also his duty—and possibly his salvation. Named by Time magazine as one of the hundred best English-language novels written since 1923, The Power and the Glory is “a violent, raw” work on “suffering, strained faith, and ultimate redemption” (The Atlantic).

Continuing the riveting tale of Tatul and Adrine, two Armenians caught up in the horrific massacre ordered by the Turkish government during WWI. With the war at its conclusion, Tatul and Adrine find themselves in the exotic and scandalous city of Istanbul, desperate to gather their people together and betrayal--even among their own--hovers in the dark crevices of the famed city. Still "The Fox" at heart, Tatul must daily battle the need to risk everything for the mission he's been given, yet guard with his life the woman he loves. With the last remnant of Noah's descendants encompassing a bedraggled band of orphans, Tatul and Adrine must sacrifice everything to save the future of their homeland.
