    1. Judym

      First, let me say that I like the Blackie Ryan books. They are entertaining and have twists and turns. This book was not one of his best, but still worth reading.

      "What is it that Sean (the Cardinal, his boss) says of you?""Sometimes in error, never in doubt?""No, his other mantra.""Thank God, Blackwood, you are on our side.""See to it, Blackie!" says the Cardinal. And Blackie does.

      I choose this book only as a start point. Any of 'The Bishop' books prove to be not only a light 'who-done-it', but more to the point they reveal the author as a compassionate, funny orator. Read one of them that includes the 'The Marriage' story - it's great (example is the Bishop in Andalusia).

      Bishop Blaclie Ryan is sent by the cardinal to investigate murders at a church in the neighborhood he grew up in.

    7. Lisa

      These books are like McDonald's. You know exactly what you're going to get; it's not great literature, but sometimes it just hits the spot.

    8. Bethe

      love Bishop Blackie, love the Chicago setting where I went to college, too bad Andrew Greeley is in poor health, wish there were more locked room mysteries to come :(

    9. Catherine

      Ok story line, but it took me awhile to decipher how the chapter titles were different characters. Not really what I like to read.

    10. Russ Cross

      I really enjoyed this book. I think I say that a lot. I rarely find a book I don't like. And I'd like to find more of this series.
