An ex-soldier, the hawk, plots to kidnap the pope to get money from all christians in the world. He forces an army lawyer to participate in this plot and uses his 4 ex-wifes to look after this lawyer. What could be a serious book becomes crazy and comical mainly because of the lawyer. He reacts hysterical to everything the Hawk does. Also, The Pope's reaction to the kidnapping is a big surprise...

Disgraced general Mackenzie Hawkins, aka THE HAWK, hatches an outrageous plan to become the richest man in the world. He conspires to kidnap the Pope and demand a dollar off every Catholic in the world for his release. Things go hilariously wrong when the Pope agrees to go along with the plan as he is desperate for good press!

George McKinney on 3/13/2015 9:13:13 PM says: I'm trying to find out whether "Shepherd's Laws of Economics", referenced at the beginning of each chapter, really exists.
I assumed not, until a Google search turned up a (apparently non-Ludlum related ) book, "The Strategist CEO: How Visionary Executives Build Organizations" by Michel Robert, and google books showed me a reference it contained to a quote from that book.
Is my assumption incorrect? I can no mention in Google or Wikipedia to a book by that name, nor to an economist named Shepherd.
