With a desire to change the genre of novels, Norbert E. Reich produced a literary piece that is more closely related to actual events. According to Reich, the readers can more easily relate to such events. “By Papal Decree: The Middle East Solution” (published by Balboa Press) is a novel set in a contemporary setting. The book is entwined with facts, the makeup of intelligence agencies, the localities, et cetera, and aims to provoke the readers and introduce new and challenging ideas.

“The book addresses the issue of the Middle East war, a religious war. A religious war can only be resolved via religion. It calls for the Pope to lead the way, the leader of the largest religion!” Reich says.

Professional killer Adam Bergman has just washed up on the Bahamian shores, naked inside a skiff, without any idea of how he got there or who shot him. Determined to find answers, he returns to his childhood church in Germany, meets his former pastor and learns that the pope wants to achieve peace in the Middle East through religion. The Holy Father cannot fulfill his mission without Adam’s help in protecting him from those who want him dead. But when tragedy strikes without warning, it leaves Adam reeling, the world in chaos, and just one man holding the answer to peace.

In this religious thriller, a course of transformative and clandestine events unfolds when the pope decides to make peace in the Middle East and hires a hit man to help him achieve his goal.
