Praise for Ralph McInerny's Father Dowling Mysteries
"You don't have to go to church to worship mystery lovers' esteemed Father Dowling."
"Father Dowling is not the average priest, one who dispenses homilies and easy nostrums. He has been through the mill himself, is tough, and yet has compassion…the Catholic equivalent of Harry Kemelman's David Small."
---The New York Times Book Review
"Mystery at its bloodless, cerebral best…Dowling is the perfect father confessor, dealing with moral dilemmas and the weakness of man with compassion and understanding."
"McInerny keeps readers on edge….A deservedly popular series."
---Publishers Weekly on Grave Undertakings
"Steeped in human drama and spiritual significance… Father Dowling's down-to-earth demeanor will appeal, as always, to a variety of readers who enjoy mysteries with a religious twist."
---Booklist on Triple Pursuit
"McInerny's nimble characterizations and subtle soundings of the moral issues make this a strong entry in the long-running series."
---Publishers Weekly on Blood Ties
