The Body Under the Bridge Press Reviews

'Beautifully written... Paul McCusker joins the likes of G. K. Chesterton and Dorothy L. Sayers with his wise and witty creation, Father Gilbert. Formerly a detective, this unassuming Church of England clergyman - Louis Gilbert - is expert in tackling many kinds of mysteries. Above and beyond his sleuthing skills and deep knowledge of human nature, Father Gilbert offers the added gift of spiritual discernment.' -- Philip Glassborow, playwright and composer

'Paul is a truly accomplished writer. His plot construction is masterly... Father Gilbert is a great creation.' -- Adrian Plass, writer and speaker

'If you like mysteries you will love The Body under the Bridge - but it's more than that; beyond the plot twists you will find deeply spiritual themes about good, evil, the family and the consequences of our choices. An incredible mixture of chills and thoughtfulness.' -- Rob Parsons, Care for the Family

'Paul McCusker weaves threads of the natural, unnatural and supernatural into a darkly tangled mystery for his detective-turned-priest Father Louis Gilbert, to unravel.' -- Brian Sibley, author of Shadowlands

'A world-wise but faithful priest who sees things, an ambitious viscount, a mummified body found under an ancient bridge, and an environmental activist who turns out to be something else altogether, meet to create a compelling connection between the past and present. Paul McCusker is a master at telling a good mystery that keeps you wondering what the next page holds. The Body Under the Bridge is wonderful development of lively characters in the midst of a chilling tale. McCusker has a great gift and you, the reader, are the recipient.' -- Glenn T. Stanton, author, speaker and researcher for Focus on the Family
