Publisher's Summary

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. Bishop Blackie has no desire to leave the friendly confines of his Chicago neighborhood to traipse around Paris searching for Fr're Jean-Claude, a popular priest who has inexplicably vanished while filming a television show. But when his Archbishop boss says, "See to it," Blackie can hardly refuse. As he sifts through a pile of suspects that includes everyone from church leaders to television executives, Blackie begins to wonder whether the reason no one can find Jean-Claude is because Jean-Claude doesn't want to be found.
George Guidall's entertaining narration perfectly captures the sharp wit and worldly wisdom of Bishop Blackie as he puzzles his way through this beguiling mystery.

predictble Greeley but has charm

Bishop Blackie is back with his usual gentle humour and Catholic milieu but with a more interesting than usual setting (Paris) and a more predictable than usual mystery. But I don't download Greeley for edge-of-seat action and suspense, just for an relaxing airport or waiting room listen, one without vivid violence or sex, written well enough to hold attention (but not riveting enough to miss a flight call). This novel suited that purpose. Excellent narration makes up for the pedestrian pace. I give it an extra star for Greeley's acknowledgement of the feminine face of God and the charming creation tale tacked on the end.

I will always love Blackie

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.
