"Time to Revisit the Protestant Reformation"
Larry Stirling's oped in The Daily Transcript, San Diego's top ranked business paper,  relying in part on GOD'S BANKERS. 

"During March of 2013, a Roman Catholic papal conclave was convened in the luxuriously appointed Vatican to consider the replacement for Pope Benedict XVI, who unexpectedly resigned well before his death.
A mystery?
Not so, says Gerald Posner in his book 'God’s Bankers: A History of Money and Power in the Vatican.' He says that Pope Benedict resigned because of the decades-old internal battle over the use and abuse of the Vatican’s independent-nation status for financial high jinks in the Vatican Bank.
Posner asserts that in addition to laundering cash and gold for the Nazis and in falling heir to many Jewish annuities nationalized by the Italian government of the time, the Vatican Bank directly benefited by the death of Jews at the hands of Hitler by not paying death benefits to beneficiaries, as most of them were also in the death camps."

Good news, Trisha Posner and I will be adding separate art/literary touches to SOUTH of SPICE, this coming Tuesday’s kickoff to Miami Spice. 
More good news: the evening is SOLD OUT.

In addition to the great food and drinks with renown chefs from eight South Of-Fifth restaurants, South of Spice also mixes in some of the neighborhood’s artists, writers and designers, each setting up shop at one of the restaurants. Among others, be sure to catch up with LEBO, Gustavo Tonelli, and the latest from Sartori Amici.

For those of you coming to this fun night, be sure to stop by Cibo Wine Bar South Beach where I will set up a God's Bankers  corner near the bar (readers tell me that some chapters are best followed by a drink). 
And a must stop is Sense Beach House - The Local House, where Trisha Posner will kick off a one month display of her remaining studio copies from her Pop Digital art collection (http://www.trishaposner.com/pop-art/)

For those of you who know us, what will really mark this is as a rare evening - besides the star food and drink - is that Trisha and I won’t be side by side all night. So stop by and keep us each company - we are sure to be having 'love' withdrawals…..:-)

Is Pope Francis obsessed with the devil?
Well, devil is at least in the details of his Vatican Bank- GOD'S BANKERS reforms 
Pope Francis seems to be obsessed with the devil. His tweets and homilies about the devil, Satan, the Accuser, the Evil One, the Father of Lies, the Ancient Serpent, the Tempter, the Seducer, the Great Dragon, the Enemy and just plain "demon" are now ...

Trisha Posner and I have been waiting for a review of GOD'S BANKERS in AMERICA, the self-described "National Catholic Review." It was published today. The reviewer is Professor Nicholas Cafardi, former dean of Duquesne Law School. He says in part:

"God’s Bankers is not so much about the history of money in the church as it is about the skullduggery surrounding it....The Vatican bank obviously needs the complete housecleaning and restructuring that Pope Francis has decided to give it, which Posner describes in the book’s last chapters. God’s Bankers is an effective brief on why such drastic measures are long, long overdue."

I love this travel article "Flight Check: Dallas to Sydney," in the New Zealand Herald. It is about how to make the time go by quickly on the $8,000 business class 'longest commercial flight in the world (16 hours)'

Under 'Entertainment' the suggestion is to spend some time reading 'the excellent Case Closed by Gerald Posner - compulsory reading for a trip to Dallas."

Case Closed is pretty happy to be part of the entertainment with John Le Carré's Tinker Tailor Solider Spy.

A sign that Winston Aldworth, the NZ Herald Travel Editor, is a very smart man indeed.....

Pick up an ebook of Case Closed, no extra travel weight: http://tiny.cc/qf270x

Less than a week to go until the 'South of Spice' event in South Beach, an entire evening of great food and drink and with God's Bankers and artists like Lebo offering nourishment for the brain -
And maybe even a last minute surprise from Trisha Posner

Thanks to Rosemary Staltare for helping to pull off what is fast becoming a South Beach summer highlight - remember, you can still buy tickets at http://southofspice.com

And this is more about the event in a new article in Digest Miami:

"There is no better way to start Miami Spice Restaurant Month than with an exclusive tasting tour of our favorite South of Fifth restaurants. Guests will have a chance to interact with the chefs of participating restaurants and sample delicious bites along with a refreshing custom cocktail or glass of wine. Indulge in savory sneak peeks of Miami Spice menu items while observing exquisite pieces by local artists, including award-winning New York Times Best Selling Author, Gerald Posner, famed artist, Lebo and well known TV producer and artist, Gustavo Tonelli. Spirits and wine experts will be onsite offering samplings and showcasing fascinating libation stations."

Serendipity.  Tomorrow Trisha Posner​ and I are off to Tampa to tape an interview with a British documentary crew filming a series of 12 controversial historical cases for Channel 5 in the UK.  One of the shows is the enduring mystery around the death of Italian banker Roberto Calvi, found hanging under London's Blackfriars Bridge in 1982, and forever immortalized in Godfather III. Calvi's hanging corpse opens God's Bankers.  Now, just a few days ago, the Italian prosecutors have finally thrown in the towel.  The 33-year investigation into who killed the man then nicknamed 'God's Banker' is at last being closed.
Too bad.  In this case, the murderers at the nexus of banking/Vatican/mafia/freemasons got away with it.

Story
Introduction
I'm a health and fitness journalist and author. This is Not Your Mother’s Menopause (Villard, 2000), was my journey through menopause hormone free. My follow-up was No Hormones, No Fear (Villard, 2003).  I am a regular contributor for national magazines. My 2004 series in Salon on women, sex, aging, and fitness, won a wide web following. After a two-year stint as the “Health Watch” and “Cultural Chatter” columnist for Miami’s Ocean Drive magazine, I also wrote for wellness for The Miami Herald.

In addition to my health and fitness pieces, I've also written features from architectural controversies to profiles on everyone from eccentric Miami wine collectors, artist Romero Britto, business developers Jorge Perez, Miami's Boom and Bust Condo King and boutique hoteliers Ian Schrager and Andre Balazs, and even politically charged interviews with outspoken pundits like Bill Maher.

Before journalism, I was in fashion and music for twenty years, and at different times, managed boutiques in London, Barcelona, and New York, created my own menswear collection, ran the art department for a Swedish recording label, and modeled. During much of that period I also researched and developed ten investigative non-fiction books with my husband, Gerald, a New York Times bestselling author (www.posner.com).

In addition to my writing, I'm a mixed media artist, a career I launched in the mid-1970s in Ibiza. I recently exhibited in Miami. My latest phase is Pop Digital Art, the digital remastering of photographs and images into limited edition collections, using the highest quality commercial equipment, utilizing incredibly stable and vibrant inks, substrates, and matte coatings, to produce brilliantly colored fine art prints. Currently in a self-described “Neon Period,” my latest work highlights the vibrant colors of Miami, which is now home.
