The Good Priest A Father Vincent Ross Mystery

LoveReading View on The Good Priest A Father Vincent Ross Mystery

April 2014 eBook of the Month.

An intriguing mystery with a difference - it’s also a fabulously affectionate glimpse into village life in all it’s scandal and glory.  The Good Priest himself is a capable, warm-hearted, wine loving soul with a wonderful cast of supporting characters; including a foul mouthed parrot and some indomitable local ladies who just happen to be the fount of all village knowledge. The author has the wonderful ability to combine charm and wit alongside the grim and gruesome, which highlights how the abhorrent can inveigle its way into everyday life. This is a fascinating, compelling and yet intimate read. ~ Liz Robinson

 

A 'Piece of Passion' from the Publisher...

'I love working on Gillian’s books, as each one of them introduces a rich gallery of human individuals, sympathetically portrayed, not just a compelling plot and pacy storyline. The Good Priest is no exception. Gillian has hit on the brilliant idea of making her central character someone who has access to the secrets and private struggles of people at all levels in a small local community, but who is not a detective or a policeman or figure of authority. Fr Vincent Ross, bumbling and shy, is a delightfully engaging character and I know Gillian’s many fans will enjoy the first ventures into criminal investigation of this unlikely hero.' - Tom  Johnstone, Managing Editor, Polygon

The Good Priest A Father Vincent Ross Mystery Synopsis

In the house of a Roman Catholic bishop a man lies in a pool of blood. Out in the bishop's diocese the quiet life of parish priest Father Vincent Ross is about to be thrown into turmoil by a terrifying revelation. There are ugly scandals being hidden by the church he has served for so long, and a murderer is on the prowl. The police and the authorities are groping in the dark, but Father Ross has been given special information that he cannot disclose to anyone. It gradually dawns on him that he and he alone can unravel the mystery and bring the nightmare of violence to an end. He must put his personal safety, his reputation and finally his life on the line.
