Irish Gilt: A Mystery Set at the University of Notre Dame

Ralph M. McInerny, Author . St. Martin's Minotaur $23.95 (231p) ISBN 978-0-312-33688-2

In McInerney's ninth Notre Dame mystery (after 2004's Green Thumb ), professor Roger Knight and his detective brother, Philip, seek the missing diaries of Fr. John Zahn, an almost forgotten 19th-century theologian, which purport to shed light on the search for El Dorado. Their investigation takes a deadly turn after the murder of an alumnus on campus. Rare book dealers, academic curmudgeons and others with conflicting loyalties and assorted agendas enliven a sleuthing exercise short on suspense and imagination. (Oct.)
