A beloved local priest brutally murdered in his own church.
A cloistered monk in a peaceful seminary shot at point-blank range.
A Jesuit teacher slain at night in his classroom.
Facing a brutal serial killer with his sights set firmly on the Catholic diocese, Boston homicide detective Lieutenant Joe McGuire—one half of the best homicide team in Boston’s history—is in a race against time to find a killer who seemingly leaves no trace.
With the help of the local diocese, McGuire’s investigation leads him to the monstrous, decades-old betrayal of an innocent child. But will McGuire be able to find the killer before he strikes again?
The Man Who Murdered God, the first novel in the thrilling Joe McGuire mystery series, won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel. It is followed by And Leave Her Lay Dying, Whisper Death, Gypsy Sins, Solitary Dancer, and Haunted Hearts.
