The December 6, 2018 issue of The New York Review of Books publishes an enthusiastic review of The Pope Who Would be King:

Kertzer’s brilliant treatment of the crisis in the papacy between 1846 and 1850 reads like a thriller. All the characters, from the poor of Rome to the king of Naples, stand out with a vividness that testifies to his mastery of prose.
