Synopsis: Father Dowling is used to unsolicited knocks on the rectory door, having done more than his share of counseling and assisting in delicate situations during his long career. So when Eleanor Wygant comes to visit Father Dowling he receives her graciously, though she is a stranger. As it turns out, members of her family are longtime parishioners of St. Hillary's, and it soon becomes clear that with family trouble brewing, Eleanor doesn't know where else to turn.

When she enlists Father Dowling's help in persuading her niece Jessica to scrap the tell-all family novel she is writing and concentrate on more earthly pursuits, the venerable priest has little idea how enmeshed he is about to become in the family's edgy interrelations. For in recent years, the family has had its share of melodrama, including a philandering patriarch, a son who left the priesthood to take up with an ex-nun, and an underachieving academic, and it's up to Dowling to piece together their shared history in the hopes of putting their demons-and a vicious, previously unknown murder-to rest.

In the hands of Ralph McInerny, one of mystery fiction's most beloved authors, Last Things is as delightful as his legions of fans have come to expect from the charming Father Dowling series.

From the Back Cover: Praise for Ralph McInerny and Father Dowling:

"You don't have to go to church to worship mystery lovers' esteemed Father Dowling....An absorbing mix of murder and morality." - Entertainment Weekly

"Father Dowling is not the average priest, one who dispenses homilies and easy nostrums. He has been through the mill himself, is tough, yet has compassion...the Catholic equivalent of Harry Kemelman's Harry Small." - The New York Times Book Review

"Mystery at its bloodless, cerebral best...Dowling is the perfect father confessor, dealing with moral dilemmas and the weakness of man with compassion and understanding." - Chicago Tribune

"McInerny has created the most engaging, irascible priest-detective since Chesterton's Father Brown....First-rate philosophical thriller." - Booklist
