Om författaren

Roman Catholic priest Andrew M. Greeley was the author of more than 100 non-fiction works of theology, sociology, prayer, and poetry; a professor of sociology; a newspaper columnist; and a successful novelist, writing in several genres, including mystery and science fiction. He was born on February visa mer 5, 1928 and was a native of Chicago. Greeley studied at Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary and earned an AB from St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in 1950, a Bachelor of Sacred Theology in 1952, and a Licentiate of Sacred Theology in 1954. He went on to receive a Master of Arts in 1961 and a Ph D in 1962. Greeley's fiction, which often told stories of crime and scandal in the Roman Catholic church, can be violent and lurid and are considered controversial by many Church leaders. Greeley wrote on such issues as homosexuality in the clergy, pedophilia, and papal politics, and he created the popular mystery series starring Father Blackie Ryan, as well as another featuring the character Nuala McGrail. Greeley was awarded honorary degrees from the University of Arizona, Bard College (New York State) and the National University of Ireland, Galway. In 1981, he received the F. Sadlier Dinger Award, which is presented each year by educational publisher William H. Sadlier, Inc. in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the ministry of religious education in America. Greeley died on May 29, 2013 at his Chicago home. He was 85. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Allmänna fakta



This is a too long rambling narrative about Blackie's trip to Spain where he solves a locked room mystery where a Spanish Nobel woman is attacked by a crazy relative who is jealous of her successful womb as well as her abilities to use money to dis others why winning the love and admiration of many. Not up to the standard Greeley achieved in The Bishop at the Lake.

Catholic bishop Blackie Ryan and amateur detective faces a couple of issues in this novel. A minor one it turns out is Archbishop Malachi Nolan's lobbying to be made the new Cardinal of Chicago. When Nolan's niece attempts to kill him with wasps, her action throws the entire Nolan family into a tizzy. Most of them accuse talented Margaret Anne Nolan of having placed the can of wasps in the Bishop's room.

Margaret's grandfather, S.P.I.K.E Nolan is the Chairman of the Board of AVEL, a family run avionics company. Many of the Nolan clan feel he is too old to be in charge and are plotting his removal. They badly underestimate his knowledge of what they are doing and when a second murder plan is discovered, Blackie finally sees the pattern and steps in with the solution.

This is my second Blackie Nolan novel and I found this one much more entertaining then the first one I read. Recommended.

Another good Blackie Ryan mystery. Ryan is in Spain to prevent a murder as a dispute among a family of nobles heats up. The target is La Dona Teresa, but can he identify the potential murderer and stop it before it happens? Greeley does a great job with the setting and exploration of Seville, Spain adding quite a bit of historical background and capturing the beauty of a once great and glamorous culture that had known its share of turmoil and war. It is a good read, but it drags in places and is a bit predictable. Greeley adds enough color and interesting characters to hold the reader's attention despite the slower pace in places. I found the historical references and the descriptions of the locale to be engaging and the characters, as usual, were well done.… (mer)
