This was a most enjoyable read that will appeal to Anglophiles, especially those interested in church history, who like a good, suspenseful mystery/thriller with well-drawn characters. The action, which begins with the violent, bloody murder of an elderly monk, Father Dominic, takes place in the present day. His young friend, theological student Felicity, and a priest who is suspected of the murder, Father Antony, decide to follow the route Dominic took on his recent pilgrimage and delve into church history in search of clues to the identity of his killer.

It's both a whodunit and a thriller, as Felicity and Antony are in constant danger from an unknown pursuer, and it's also a spiritual journey with much reflection on the nature of evil. I'm happy to see that this is the first book in a new series, "The Monastery Murders," and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next one.
