Summers in North Carolina are usuallly peaceful, but when Kokomo, the world-famous signing gorilla, comes to town, suddenly there's a dead body in the church and all the evidence points to the great ape. A LITURGICAL MYSTERY featuring Det. Hayden Konig, orgaist, choir director of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church and detective is at work again.
This is the fifth book in Schweizer's Hayden Konig series and if you are a fan of this series already, this one will not disappoint. It is filled with clever (bad?) puns, high farce, and spectacle and all the usual suspects are back. However, this book is about forty pages longer than the others in the series and frankly, that's about how many pages could have been pared to make this book tighter and more enjoyable. It isn't bad, just a wee bit long. Regardless, I am a huge fan of this series and will continue to read the books as long as Schweizer writes them. I always finish a St Germaine adventure with a huge grin on my face.
