Matters of succession lead to attempted murder in the latest of Greeley's popular mysteries.Archbishop Malachi Nolan has designs on the Diocese of Chicago despite the fact the Most Reverend Blackwood Ryan, himself recently appointed an archbishop, is currently in line for the post.

Not bad. I don't expect much from Greeley--no more than I expect from most contemporary mystery novels. This one surpassed my expectations while also delivering the required (for me, at this time) escape from "heavy" writing!

Although the ending (almost always the problem) was a bit facile with a complete turn-about for one of the characters I still enjoyed it. Greeley did a bit of sermonizing, but that did not bother me. I always enjoy trying to put a pin (as it were) on the place where I think my sister and nephew-in-law would throw the book across the room. The first one that stood out for me this time was when someone nearly died in an accident, but said (roughly), "I just took communion, so I knew I'd go straight to heaven." Of course, to be fair, they would not throw the book anywhere since they would never pick it up in the first place!!

A fun read, and I would recommend it. ( )

Haven't read a mystery in quite some time. This was recommended by my wife who reads all of Andrew Greeleys books. Book is a quick read and Blackie is a bit of a character. Worth taking out. ( )
