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.

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.
