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 follow him to Englesea and a church conference.
Englesea has a strong illegal sex trade, and the people in charge are fighting to dominate. The victims are being traded across borders and in London. Now someone has died.
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.
I like reading mysteries. I’m not sure about this series though, because Father Gilbert sees ghosts and something called the Shadow Man. I know there are evil spirits in the world, but I’m not sure how much I enjoy reading about it. It’s something to think about before you read the book.
Death in the Shadows was well written. There was a lot of detail, and the characters were well developed. I wasn’t sure who was the murderer. I didn’t even have any ideas, so I wasn’t sure until the end. I like it when it is hard to figure out who did it. I really didn’t see this one coming.
On the whole I thought this was a good book. I think it would be a good book for men. I know that some women would enjoy it as well.
