Description

With over 15 million copies of his books in print, Father Andrew M. Greeley has an unmatched flair for writing entertaining fiction that offers wry observations about religious and secular life. His popular novels featuring Bishop Blackie Ryan offer delightful locked-room mysteries set against the intricate politics of the Catholic church. Bishop Blackie has no desire to leave the friendly confines of his Chicago neighborhood to traipse around Paris searching for Fr're Jean-Claude, a popular priest who has inexplicably vanished while filming a television show. But when his Archbishop boss says, "See to it," Blackie can hardly refuse. As he sifts through a pile of suspects that includes everyone from church leaders to television executives, Blackie begins to wonder whether the reason no one can find Jean-Claude is because Jean-Claude doesn't want to be found. George Guidall's entertaining narration perfectly captures the sharp wit and worldly wisdom of Bishop Blackie as he puzzles his way through this beguiling mystery.

Professional reviews

"Why would a young French priest conducting a tour in the crypt of Notre Dame de Paris suddenly round a corner and disappear? Greeley's popular part-time detective, Bishop Blackie Ryan, is on the case in this closed-room enigma. With the help of a penniless but promising musician he finds panhandling on the steps of the church of St-Germain-des-PrŽs, he learns that many folks are glad the cleric's gone. George Guidall takes the author's sketchy character outlines and fills them in with authentic accents, dry undertones, and lively pacing. In fact, he quickens the mystery's snail pace enough to keep the listener eagerly attentive, despite the author's frequent theological asides. E.V. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
