I really enjoyed this story about four boyhood friends who, as adults, become a priest, a police officer, a DA and a reporter. When the priest's body is found at the bottom of a four-story building the remaining friends can't believe it was suicide. The investigation paints a picture of their lives, one that deepens with every page and chapter.

I enjoyed this book. I liked how it jumped back and forth between the murder investigation and the history between the victim and his friends who are investigating the crime. What unfolds is a story about love lost and one man's attempt to deal with it.
Enemy of God was an unexpected and enjoyable read.

This book took time to read and wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Being in the same profession, I expected more substance and grit.

Nice read. Unexpected (but a tiny bit flat) surprise ending. Pretty literate take on several of the 5 main characters.
