    1 thought on “Bishop as Pawn”

    1. Fr. Roger Dowling, rector of St. Hillary's in Fox Ridge, Ill is counseling a young woman on whether or not she should marry the man her parents do not approve of when his housekeeper's husband, gone for fifteen years, appears in the kitchen, much to Marie Murkin's surprise, and dismay.After getting over her shock, Marie banishes him to her room. When she goes up later to confront him she finds him shot to death. Thus begins a tale of thievery, deception, kidnapping and murder that leads Fr. Dowl [...]

    2. I'm not an expert on mysteries, but this one seemed at least as good as most I've encountered. Having just completed all of G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown mysteries, I can see some obvious parallels. Father Dowling comes across as more flawed, and thus more real. And the longer format permits a more intricate plot and more believable characters.The unraveling of the moderately complex mystery was pleasant to read, but what was even more enjoyable was the consistent orthodoxy and the many jabs at [...]

    3. I grew up watching Father Dowling, a Catholic priest who solves crimes, on television (1987-1991). Based on a series of books (1977-2009) by Ralph McInerny, it is clear that Father Dowling is based on Father Brown, an earlier G. K. Chesterton creation. The character of Father Dowling is very different in the television show than he is in the book, and I think any enjoyment of the book for me was due almost entirely to my superimposing Tom Bosley's Father Frank Dowling over McInervy's Father Roge [...]

    4. An atheistic Priest and a renegade priest form part of the plot in which the killer is female. Clearly, these are more than potboiler mysteries but insight into the Notre Dame professor who wrote them.

    5. An excellent read, and so far my favorite book in the series. I can't wait to see what misadventures Father Dowling gets himself into next!

    6. This is the second book that I have read in the Father Dowling series. I just happened to be in the library when they were withdrawing this book and my favorite librarian handed it over to me. I've now read both of the books I was given and I will be taking them to the Used Book sale held by the Friends of the Library later this month. In this third book of the series, not only is there a murder in the rectory of St. Hilary's in Fox River, Illinois, but Bishop Rooney of the Archdiocese of Chicag [...]

    7. I enjoyed the second of the series better than the first. Again, much meatier stories than the TV show had to offer. Good mystery. Kept me guessing. When housekeeper Marie's estranged husband reappears out of the blue after fifteen years only to be shot and killed in Marie's bedroom the same night, the police and Father Dowling must untangle layers of deception.
