The Devil's Labyrinth by John Saul

The Devil's Labyrinth by John Saul has all the ingredients of a modern thriller: set in Boston, two men Tom Kelly and Father Sebastian who are not who they appear to be, a Catholic school with students locked in the catacomb-like maze beneath the school buildings, a Islamic plot to kill the Pope, and a 16-year boy, Ryan McIntyre, whose father died in Kuwait and whose mother has been almost murdered. It falls to Ryan to save the Pope and unravel the plot.

The book also offers something more: exorcisms, ancient incantations, and evil forces that inhabit, speak to and control people. For anyone with a yen for a mixture of horror and suspense, this is the book.
