Book in the Father Dowling Series)

Book in the Father Dowling Series). The mystery elements of this Fr. Dowling novel aren't quite up to par with the best of the genre (they aren't even as good as some of McInerny's own work). But the characters are compelling, life-like, and well-drawn. The real mystery isn't in who killed/kidnapped whom, but in figuring out the real-life counterparts to the main characters, some of whom are thinly-veiled, others who are barely-veiled, and still others who are well-disguised. Anyone who's been a student at Notre Dame in the past twenty years has a considerable advantage, of course.

Ralph Matthew McInerny (February 24, 1929 – January 29, 2010) was an American author and Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. McInerny's most popular mystery book series featured Father Dowling. This character was the basis for the Father Dowling Mysteries television show, which ran from 1987 to 1991. He sometimes wrote under the pseudonyms of Harry Austin, Matthew FitzRalph, Ernan Mackey, Edward Mackin and Monica Quill.

Father Roger Dowling is a busy man. He's got the ambitious and all-encompassing task of running St. Hilary's Parish, dealing with his busybody housekeeper, Mrs. Murkin, and counseling his flock with his characteristic blend of faith and compassion. He's not complaining, but it's no surprise that even a superior priest like Father Dowling needs a break now and again.

When a friend gives him tickets to the Notre Dame-USC football game and a Vatican cardinal asks to meet him there for a conference, Father Dowling travels to Indiana, where the visiting cardinal is kidnapped during the game.
Comments:
Hasirri
I enjoy the TV series, and wanted to read the books, the books have more characters, and different characters from the TV series, they are enjoyable though.

Ann
Good book and fast delivery

Agalas
I have the same comments as I did when I reviewed Stained Glass: too many characters and scenarios. In addition, some of the characters in the books are different than in the TV series; for instance: there is no Sister Steve in the book.

McInerny does a fairly decent job of portraying the annullment problems within the Church. He has a perspective, of course, but it's not one that is easily dismissed as reactionary, unlike some other views. As with divorce, single-parent families, and a variety of other social problems, there are--regardless of the intentions and circumstances--consequences for the individual people involved.

Ochach
The editorial reviews, collectively, are partly inaccurate and, even worse, give away too much. Suffice it to say that this book sees the return of many familiar characters and the introduction of intriguing new ones in a complex plot that takes place partly at Notre Dame, where the author teaches philosophy. Intermingled are numerous thoughtful philosophical asides.
However, don't buy this for the climactic football game. There must be a half dozen implausibilities in McInerny's account -- but he describes impossible games in other novels too. This book is not about football.
