Father Dowling is the longtime pastor of St. Hilary’s Church. He is conscientious in his obligations to his parish and his flock. He is also a first rate sleuth.

Jane Devere is a lifelong member of the parish and prominent member of the community. She is inordinately proud of her family history and its connection to St. Hilary’s Church.

The congregation of St. Hilary’s has just received the terrible news that their historic and beloved parish is about to be closed. Jane will not let it go without a fight, based on a particularly beautiful stained glass window donated by her grandfather and made by a famous artist. Her connection to a recently found corpse brings the canny pastor into the picture, leading to the discovery of even more skeletons in her family closet.

Fans of Father Dowling are going to love this addition to the long running series. Mr. McInerney has crafted a wonderfully convoluted mystery that will have the reader enthralled and intrigued. The characters are interesting and unique. The plot is filled with unexpected twists and turns, not to mention a little bit of romance. St. Hilary’s is not a parish for the faint of heart. Father Dowling is a favorite of mine, and this story is definitely going on my keeper shelf.
