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. Download and start listening now!

    " This was great! I should have figured out the mystery but I didn't and I liked that! The plot is well crafted and, of course, I like the references to the idea that maybe one day the Catholic Church will be less restrictive about the role of women. "

    " This was a lot of fun, especially since I had just visited the Crypte and St-Germain. "

    " a delightful "locked-room" mystery without gratuitous violence that I couldn't quite predict all the way to the end - a rarity for me! "

    " The mystery is great, but I got sick of phrases being repeated ad nauseum (every other page, no lie). "
