Notes/ Thoughts:
The Bishop’s man is the priest who deals with his fellow clergy who have strayed from the righteous path. He helps to relocate those suspected of child abuse, those whose housekeepers get pregnant, and those who start drinking too much. He himself is a man of integrity, as much as the one put into impossible circumstances can be.
It’s a very good book. Nicely balanced in its search for truth and in dealing with complicated victim-abuser issues. Sparse in words, but that’s how the communication among people who do not want to say anything looks like. It tells a good and entirely believable story that keeps one in suspense until the very end.

Maria Looks interesting. I like to see how writers deal with certain moralityr issues, & I'm looking for a quickish suspense read at the moment. I take it the writing is all right -- a 4 isn't bad!

Mag The writing is fine, but it's not a quick read by any means. There are stories that do not get resolved until the very end, but it's not a suspense novel really. It's worth reading though.

Maria All the better.
