Father Anselm investigates the atrocities of war in this gripping mystery, proving that no one can truly escape the darkness of their past.

The Golden Dagger Award-winning installment of the Father Anselm thrillers, praised by Jeffery Deaver as “reminiscent of the early works of John le Carré,” A Whispered Name reaches into the mysteries of one man's past and casts light on the long shadows war leaves behind.

In the Larkwood Priory, secrets are rare. So Father Anselm is deeply dismayed by an allegation against Herbert Moore, one of the founding fathers of the Priory and the man who shaped his own vocation. The claim is inconceivable, but Anselm soon learns that Herbert did indeed have secrets in his past that he kept hidden all his life.

While investigating the accusation, Father Anselm discovers the horrors of a long-buried secret of war involving the young Captain Moore. A novel of moral complexity, superb characterization and, above all, profound humanity, A Whispered Name is fit to stand with the finest thrillers inspired by the First World War.

About the Author:

William Brodrick was an Augustinian friar before leaving the order to become a barrister. He won the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger Award in 2009, and is the author of six novels featuring Father Anselm, all available or forthcoming from Overlook.

Review:

“Poignant . . . with incredible pacing . . . Readers seeking a thought-provoking, nuanced story that engages difficult moral questions will appreciate this tale of courage, sacrifice, and redemption.”
- Publishers Weekly

“This complex thriller, winner of the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger Award, explores some of life’s biggest moral questions and puts a human face on the war to end all wars.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“The horrors of Passchendaele in 1917 run through this exquisite novel. Just how much can a man take before he must simply walk away? And what kind of strength enables one man to lay down his life for another? ”
- The Guardian

“Brodrick's exploratory novels are refreshing and restorative, his style is thoughtful and precise; his integrity powerful. You feel better for having read them. Maybe you are.”
- The Spectator
