The Crooked Stick

ByRick Koestler

When Franciscan Monk, Peto Cardinelli visits his twin brother, Paulo, in prison for stealing church relics he'd sold to feed the poor, he unexpectedly dies. Paulo seizes the moment to escape jail and switches clothes, determined to carry on his brother's commission to escort deviant Archbishop Morlan Fadesti to Rome for his ordination as Cardinal. After Paulo discovers the Archbishop is hiding dark secrets, he covertly employs his actor friends to pose as Vatican officials and join him in an effort to stop the corrupt priest once and for all. When the players are all in place, Paulo conspires with them to deceive the Archbishop into paying for his own imprisonment.
