(19TH BOOK IN "FATHER KOESLER MYSTERY SERIES") Father Koesler goes on vacation, leaving his parish and the sleuthing to the visiting Father Zachary Tully. Father Tully has come to Detroit to meet Koesler's partner in sleuthing, Lt. Alonzo "Zoo" Tully, the half-brother Fr. Tully never knew he had. During Fr. Koesler's absence, a bank manager is killed in an apparent hold-up. The Tully brothers team up to untangle a chain of dark secrets, broken laws, and shattered commandments. As the story unfolds, the possibility is raised that Fr. Koesler may turn his mantle over to Fr. Tully. And what about the bank's president, the book's namesake, the man who loves God? Well, he's no angel. "Kienzle surely ranks among the top talents working today."
