Good Priest - Bad Book. Yes, there are a few murders but almost half way through the book and the good priest is stiff waffling around the place doing little more than nothing. I gave it 3 tries and in the end decided it was a huge waste of time and so utterly boring. Try another book.

Written with attention to location and details but it somehow got a bit lost I felt. The characters were in either sterotyped or difficult to believe in. Father Ross, although the 'good priest' shows little taste for things in any way religious. He seems more concerned with his drink and his comfort. Not that those things aren't things a good priest could enjoy but that seems to be the limit of his 'vision', although he is of course decent. The flawed characters are hard to believe although the bad priest are pretty believable. The nuns were insipid and as for the humour it was poor. Sorry to say I didn't enjoy the story although I did enjoy the actual writing at times. After the first chapter it just never provided enough in the way of tension or excitement. Rather disappointing.

An interesting story, highlighting the sexual secrets that are kept from the public about RC clergy. It does make one wonder how this was covered up for SO long.
