Following his father¿s gift to him of a sizable amount of money, Wallace Flanagan vanished. His friends and family including his wife Melissa assumed he dumped his spouse to run off with his latest lover.---------------- However years later, Wally¿s body is found, mashed by a cement mixer. His father and his former lover want to know where he was when he vanished, why he suddenly reappeared dead in equipment owned by his family¿s firm, and who killed him. However, Melissa instead turns to Father Dowling of St. Hilary¿s in Fox River to pray for Wally¿s eternal soul. Unable to ignore the mortal concerns of an apparent homicide, Father Dowling begins investigating only to learn a friend of Wally, Greg Packer, has been killed too.-------------- THE WIDOW¿S MATE is a terrific whodunit as Father Dowling prays for Wally¿s soul, tries to provide solace to the widow and also seeks the truth as to what happened. The story line is filled with twists and red herrings so that the audience is never sure what to expect next as Ralph McInerney keeps fans guessing (and reading). Father Dowling is at his best in this delightful parish cozy.-------- Harriet Klausner .----------------Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
