Publisher's Summary

In the seventh audiobook of the deftly written Collins-Burke Mystery series, Father Brennan Burke's patience is pushed to the limit when a young woman announces to the world that the Virgin Mary has appeared to her in the churchyard, and hordes of pilgrims, souvenir hawkers, and reporters converge on the scene. But, as unwelcome as these guests may be, they pale in comparison to yet another aggravation in Father Burke's life, a controversial talk show host who clashes with Burke upon arriving in town. Events take a darker turn when a body is found at the apparition site, and the talk show host is picked up for the murder. There is enough aggravation to go around, as Monty Collins learns when he takes on the loud-mouthed TV man as a client. Monty and Brennan both have a stake in uncovering the truth about the murder, and they both learn disturbing things about the accused man and other suspects in the case. Neither man can talk to the other about what he has learned, however, due to solicitor - client confidentiality on one side, the seal of the confessional on the other.

Well crafted murder mystery

I hate to admit it but this is the first Anne Emery novel I've listened to or read and I live in Halifax. It's a delightful mystery well-performed by Christian Rummel. Emery has developed two fascinating main characters in Father Burke and Monty Collins and in this book and equally diabolical, nauseating, obnoxious character in TV show host, Pike Podges. A young woman is stabbed to death on the grounds of Father Burke's church and the journey to discover who committed the crime takes the reader through many exciting hills and valleys.
I must now go and check out another Emery book. It's well worth it.

Books 1 & 4 Better

It's o.k.... I love Burke & Collins....... And I love Christian Rummel's narration. So far I have laughed out loud with the sarcasim in each book. I didn't like the end that much.... The middle was o.k.... I'm glad I'm not a parishioner at that church... People keep ending up dead there. I don't know har far the series should go...
