The Widow's Mate:
A Father Dowling Mystery
by Ralph McInerny (St. Martin’s Minotaur)
When the body of a man who was suspected of fleeing town with his mistress a decade earlier is discovered, Father Dowling is drawn into the case that mixes past and present secrets. The St. Hilary’s parish priest has plenty of suspects from which to choose and diverse motives to investigate.
This is the 26th Dowling mystery by McInerny, a Notre Dame professor of philosophy who also is the author of a mystery series set at Notre Dame.
