Priests and nuns are his targets. A plain black rosary entwined between the fingers of each victim is his calling card. The police don't have a clue, but Father Koesler sees a pattern -- a consuming religious obsession that can drive one man to serial murder. And to an unexpected and terrifying encounter inside the Father's own confessional.

Father William Koesler, a Roman Catholic priest and editor of the Detroit Catholic, is the amateur detective of this series. The crimes he solves are an interesting tangle involving religion and ethics, much like Harry Kemelman's Rabbi series, but the Father Koesler mysteries are remarkable especially for the insights they offer into the lives of priests and nuns -- and for the fly-on-the-wall perspective on what priests actually talk about around the dinner table in the parish rectory. Is it true to life? Most likely it is; Kienzle spent two decades as a parish priest and, like his protagonist, edited a Catholic newspaper before he left the priesthood.
