Fundamentals of Murder

William Love, Author Dutton Books $18.95 (247p) ISBN 978-1-55611-233-1
When the Lord sent Jerry Fanning to New York City to convert sinners, the young Oklahoma fundamentalist had no idea that he'd soon be jailed for strangling three prostitutes and a model on four successive Fridays in Times Square. But Jerry has not been abandoned. Racing to the rescue are two rising stars on the investigative scene--the paraplegic Bishop Regan (more Nero Wolfe than Father Dowling) and his ex-cop assistant, Davey Goldman, ``a Jew ( and an atheist)''--introduced in The Chartreuse Clue. Despite occasional lapses in pace and a predictable solution, this ecumenical whodunit by a former Benedictine monk and banker is a brisk, diverting read with a smashing climax. (July)
