With over 15 million copies of his books in print, Father Andrew M. Greeley has an unmatched flair for writing entertaining fiction that offers wry observations about religious and secular life. His popular novels featuring Bishop Blackie Ryan offer delightful locked-room mysteries set against the intricate politics of the Catholic church.

In every story there is a lesson. It is an amble along side a funny priest with a payoff that will (at least for me), makes you think and sometimes smile. Andrew Greeley has been a great favorite of mine for a long time. I am not a religious person, but I always take the teaching of this gentle bishop to heart. Read the beauties, some of the Bishops finest works.
