From the Bronx to Harlem, from Vietnam to Africa, this novel follows the efforts of a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and the NYPD's chief of internal affairs as they try to understand what drove their boyhood friend, an unconventional priest at odds with the Church's teachings, to suicide. Richard M. Davidson delivers the lilting Irish brogue of a Catholic monsignor with the same deft expertise he displays for the low, menacing growls of seasoned cops. His presentation of venial church officials creates distaste beyond his words. Yet despite Davidson's expertise, the characters, and the moral dilemmas that define them, fail to come to life.
