The reporting for God's Bankers began in 2005. It took Posner to long forgotten archives in Europe and South America to uncover a story that the Vatican preferred not be written. The end result is classic investigative reporting about the inner workings of money and power inside the world's largest religion. "It is not about faith, belief in God, or questions about the existence of a higher power," explains Posner. "Instead, it is about how money, accumulating and fighting over it, has been a dominant theme inside the church."
"A dogged reporter exhaustively pursues the nefarious enrichment of the Vatican, from the Borgias to Pope Francis....A meticulous work that cracks wide open the Vatican’s legendary, enabling secrecy." - KIRKUS
