Blood on a Saint

1 Mins read

bloodonasaint200Last time we caught up with Father Burke and Monty Collins, they were back in the old country for Death at Christy Burke’s. Now they’ve returned to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and a woman’s claim to have seen the Virgin Mary in the churchyard of St Bernadette’s is about to give them their biggest headache yet. In the wake of all the pilgrims who have traveled to the church, controversial talkshow host Pike Podgis has arrived in town to ask some probing questions of Fr Brennan. Things don’t go well but less than 24 hours later a body is found in the churchyard, and it’s Podgis who finds himself with uncomfortable questions to answer. Monty finds himself lumbered with the man’s defence, and with Brennan bound by the confessional, the pair must try to solve a crime without discussing what they know with each other.

This book was Spriteby’s favourite crime novel of 2013, and so it’s on our Recommended list.
