Sobre l'autor

Roman Catholic priest Andrew M. Greeley was the author of more than 100 non-fiction works of theology, sociology, prayer, and poetry; a professor of sociology; a newspaper columnist; and a successful novelist, writing in several genres, including mystery and science fiction. He was born on February mostra'n més 5, 1928 and was a native of Chicago. Greeley studied at Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary and earned an AB from St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in 1950, a Bachelor of Sacred Theology in 1952, and a Licentiate of Sacred Theology in 1954. He went on to receive a Master of Arts in 1961 and a Ph D in 1962. Greeley's fiction, which often told stories of crime and scandal in the Roman Catholic church, can be violent and lurid and are considered controversial by many Church leaders. Greeley wrote on such issues as homosexuality in the clergy, pedophilia, and papal politics, and he created the popular mystery series starring Father Blackie Ryan, as well as another featuring the character Nuala McGrail. Greeley was awarded honorary degrees from the University of Arizona, Bard College (New York State) and the National University of Ireland, Galway. In 1981, he received the F. Sadlier Dinger Award, which is presented each year by educational publisher William H. Sadlier, Inc. in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the ministry of religious education in America. Greeley died on May 29, 2013 at his Chicago home. He was 85. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Another good Blackie Ryan mystery. Ryan is in Spain to prevent a murder as a dispute among a family of nobles heats up. The target is La Dona Teresa, but can he identify the potential murderer and stop it before it happens? Greeley does a great job with the setting and exploration of Seville, Spain adding quite a bit of historical background and capturing the beauty of a once great and glamorous culture that had known its share of turmoil and war. It is a good read, but it drags in places and is a bit predictable. Greeley adds enough color and interesting characters to hold the reader's attention despite the slower pace in places. I found the historical references and the descriptions of the locale to be engaging and the characters, as usual, were well done.… (més)

Read through the first twenty pages and make up your mind, because its a lot more of the same the rest of the way through.

The lead character is named Seamus Finbar O'Neil, and his name is the subtlest thing about him.

No quiet, delicate subtext here - just a wee mite of a hero's tale laid on with a thick brogue.

I thought it was fun, but it's likely an acquired taste :-)
