Michael Squire is dead of an apparent drug overdose. His programming partner, Scottish Calder McMonagle, is skeptical. How could Michael have overdosed?

Fearing for his own life—and convinced that there is more to Michael’s death than what people are telling him—Calder travels to California in search of the truth. With the help of a kooky but beautiful lady friend, Calder quickly becomes aware of a conspiracy behind the murder.

Thus begins Calder’s determined quest. His serendipitous, often humorous journey brings him into a whirlwind of deceit, sex, murder, and—could it be?—true love. Calder’s shocking discoveries lead him to the true force behind Michael’s demise, incriminating major figures in one of the world’s most revered institutions.

Author Ron Wilk brings dramatic life to this gripping tale of the search for answers following the death of a friend. While creating a brilliant spiral that grows out of his young lead’s untiring pursuit, Wilk unravels a mystery which never lets up.


Born in New York City, Ron Wilk was trained as a doctor of neurology and achieved chief resident status at the prestigious Mt. Sinai Hospital of NYC. Following an injury, he retired from his long-time Boca Raton, Florida, practice and has gone on to pursue myriad other interests, including photography, gastronomy, fine wines, and last but not least, the desire to share the fruits of his fertile imagination. He is the author of several highly successful Internet-published novels, specifically Red Death and Kerberos, but Papal Rogues represents his first hard-copy opus.
