out of the three Tony Perona books I read, this one "Second Advent" was my favorite --- why? it flowed more smoothly than the others. And I didn't guess the solution to the mystery until more than halfway through the book, so it kept me guessing. I didn't like all the religious stuff , but it wasn't preachy and the religious story line was effective because it kept the reader guessing ---- on the surface many of us don't believe in the bleeding statues and the apparitions that miraculously appear to certain people --- but then down deep, many of us aren't really sure because there seems a lot of unexplained things happening. That's what premise this book plays on, and I have to admit, it kept me reading. There seemed to be more variety to the places and people that the investigative reporter covered here. I DID miss the character of his wife (she never made a physical appearance here) but dad took on more prominence and I liked that character a lot. On the whole, I'd recommend this.
