William X. Kienzle, Author Andrews McMeel Publishing $15.95 (312p) ISBN 978-0-8362-6125-7
Burnishing the reputation he has earned with The Rosary Murders , Kienzle again sets series hero Father Koesler among criminals in Detroit. The priest visits a dark, cheerless cloister where four monks draw the media and swarms of citizens when one of the friars reputedly works a miraculous cure. Although skeptical, homicide detective ``Zoo'' Tully takes his ailing lover to the cloister and the monk heals her instantly. There is no perceived connection between the murder of an old bum, a case assigned to Tully, nor to the attempted murder of Koesler's friend, reporter Pat Lennon, as she writes about the secretive community. But Koesler, versed in Catholic rituals and wise to the ways of con artists, performs wonders of his own. Proving that faith does move mountains, the author entertains and educates. (Apr.)
