The Medjugorje Deception by E. Michael Jones.
This is a very powerful account of the events surrounding the alleged apparitions in Medjugorje, in which the author demonstrates beyond question that Medjugorje is the greatest religious fraud of modern times.
As it says on the back cover: "The Medjugorje Deception breaks the conspiracy of silence that has surrounded one of the biggest hoaxes of the 20th century. The Medjugorje Deception tells the truth from beginning to end ... [it's] more than a book; it's a spiritual work of mercy."
