Death In The Shadows
A Father Gilbert Mystery book 2
by Paul McCusker
-From the back cover-
When Father Gilbert traded in his detective's badge for an Anglican priest's collar, he never expected that murder would follow him. Even a church conference in the quaint seaside town of Englesea offers no escape.
The vision of a dead woman, water dripping from her body, draws Gilbert into a mystery that seems straightforward, but soon entangles him in a power struggle between corrupt players who want to dominate the illegal sex trade in town. The victims are pawns in a game that extends to London and across international borders.
The dead cry for justice and Father Gilbert fights against forces hiding in the shadows. Can he champion the truth in time to stop more people from dying?
Death & spooks are all part of the job
A few years back I was by turns delighted and chilled as I listened to the Father Gilbert audio dramas. I was pretty disappointed when they quit making them and thus quite thrilled when I found out that there was now a Father Gilbert book series! I just HAD to read it! Death In The Shadows is book 2 in the series and author Paul McCusker delivers more of the British charm, mystery, and chilling interactions with the spiritual realm that the audio series was known for and book one abounded in.
This Book received a 4.5 Bark rating.
I really can't say enough about all of the Father Gilbert stories, especially the books, but I will tell you that Death In The Shadows and its predecessor are definite MUST reads! I absolutely CAN'T wait for a book 3!
