St. Martin's Griffin

Father Sebastian, the only good priest everybody knows, is dead. Pastor of a parish outside Chicago, Father Sebastian was also involved in the gay community through his work with Faith, the gay Catholic organization the diocese is trying to drive out of the church.

High school teacher Tom mason, who has gained some local notoriety from his involvement in a couple of murder cases, is asked by friends to look into the priest's death; was it murder? Along with his lover Scott Carpenter, a professional baseball player, Tom plunges into ecclesiastical intrigues, the hidden underground of gay Chicago and the tragedies caused by a hypocritical church.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Only Good Priest

"Zubro is certainly one of the best, perhaps comparable only to Joseph Hansen in his appeal."--The Purloined Letter

"Zubro deserves praise across the board. His characters are believable, the plotting is intricate and taut, the Chicagoland locations and personalities are very convincing. We look forward to future works by Mr. Zubro."--Gay Chicago Magazine

"Zubro has written yet another fast-paced mystery, complete with well-rounded, likeable characters and an interesting plot. His writing is so crisp that The Only Good Priest is this month's pick."--Windy City Times
