I'm a fan of Greeley's style. I like his wit, his assumption that the reader has what used to be called "a liberal eduction", and the way he works theological viewpoints into the story. I may be weird, but here's another "locked room" mystery that is solved with a twist. Athiests will not appreciate this book, everyone else should give it a shot, especially those familiar with Catholic tradition.
