The Body Under the Bridge

Father Gilbert used to be a Scotland Yard detective.  He is now a priest at St. Mark’s in a small Sussex town.  As a detective, he has experienced death.  He didn’t expect it to come as a suicide and murder in his small town.  The suicide happened that day and the murder was two hundred years earlier.  Could the deaths be linked?

It happens that they are linked, and it exposes an old family feud between the Todds and the Hayshams.  A ring and sword are also involved. 

Will Father Gilbert get involved with the case?  Is there a sinister force involved?   

About the Author-

Paul McCusker currently lives in Colorado.  He has written many novels and audio dramas.  He has written books for Adventures in Odyssey and The Imagination Station Series.  The Father Gilbert Mysteries originally began as an audio drama series.

My thoughts-

I like reading mysteries.  I have never heard of Father Gilbert or the audio dramas, but I enjoyed reading this book.

I liked how it involved suspense, the super natural, and the church.  Daily we face evil, even though we may not see it.  I liked how Paul McCusker showed evil and good.  There are those in the world that desire to harm us, but there are also those who want to protect us.

I wasn’t sure who was the murderer.  I had some ideas, but I wasn’t sure until the end.  I like it when it is hard to figure out who did it. 

I thought this was a good book.  I read some of it at night, so it was a little creepy.  I think it would be a good book for men.  I know that women would enjoy it as well.

Happy reading!
