A dead bishop - scandal in the church. Amid concerns about his sons, detective Paul Turner's new case involves a dead Catholic bishop in Chicago. The intrigue and scandal swirling around the bishop while he was alive are nothing compared to the danger and deception that follow his murder. Paul Turner has to balance his familial devotion with the expectations and pressures surrounding the murder of the prominent cleric. Local politicians and priests compete as they add risk and menace to an already difficult case. A smart, tough detective and a good, loving dad, Turner plunges into the slew of crises that confront him.

* more than 150$ is a direct donation from a supporter of the Rainbow Awards who isn't submitting; while some authors were more than generous, arriving to donate 5 times the suggested amount, being the submission fee a non mandatory and voluntary direct donation, we were struggling to raise the same amount as last year and there is who decided to cover part of it. I thank you for all you are doing, and if you wish to donate to the above links, please drop me a note with your donation and I will update the total.
