The cover synopsis and the praise quotes from various reviewers influenced me enough to buy this book; however, the deeper I got into the novel, the more I thought that I was reading something very different than what the reviewers read. While I continued to read the book, it was very hard to look past the book's obvious flaws.

Many of the characters were not developed well, and the whole concept of naming the book _The Good Men_ is very strange. The Cathars play a very tertiary role in this book, only appearing right before someone dies. It seemed that the book's real story was about three generations of women and their relationship with a perverted pedophile priest... and the cover of the book said nothing about that.
