The Ablative Case

Ralph M. McInerny. Five Star (ME), $26.95 (251pp) ISBN 978-0-7862-5234-3

A bungled kidnapping by two inept psychiatrists sets the tone for The Ablative Case, a lighthearted stand-alone from Anthony winner Ralph McInerny, creator of Father Dowling and author of Emerald Aisle (Forecasts, Sept. 24, 2001) and other titles in his Notre Dame mystery series. Can the staff of Lyndon Johnson Community College, where the intended victim works in financial aid, cope with the spiraling mayhem?
