Rumors run rampant that the pope comes bearing a pronouncement on birth control that will rock devout Catholics to the very foundations of their faith, and Father Koesler can't help but get caught up in the religious controversy. But soon he'll be swept into the secular--and dangerous--business of protecting the pontiff's life.

Overview

A visit from the pope is cause for celebration for most members of the Catholic community, but for those charged with ensuring his safety, it can be a security nightmare. And when His Holiness schedules a trip to Detroit, the police find themselves in over their heads even before his plane touches down. In Call No Man Father, the seventeenth Father Koesler mystery from William X. Kienzle, the Detroit police learn that a figure as prominent as the pope can be at risk from all sorts of unexpected directions. Some Catholics themselves fear that he will declare his controversial stand on birth control infallible, and are prepared to take extreme measures to stop him. A suburban gang that considers murder a status symbol sees the pope as the ultimate mark. And one renegade newspaper reporter, looking to salvage his career with the story of a lifetime, may be willing to manufacture that story himself.

An impending papal visit is wreaking havoc in Detroit--thanks to rumors of a shocking pronouncement on birth control the pope will deliver. But His Holiness may never get to speak if a series of would-be assassins have their way. Crime-cracking Detroit priest Father Robert Koesler races against time to save the pope in the latest addition to the bestselling series.

Editorial Reviews

Margaret Flanagan
Kienzle has written another supremely intelligent puzzler featuring his perceptive priest, Father Robert Koesler, and bolstered by a strong cast of engaging supporting characters. In anticipation of a scheduled papal visit, Inspector Walter Koznicki and Lt. Alonzo Tully of the Detroit Police Department design an elaborate blueprint for security to protect the vulnerable pontiff during his brief stopover in one of America's most blighted urban areas. Meanwhile, Joe Cox and Pat Lennon, sometime lovers and investigative reporters for rival newspapers, vie to outscoop each other when a gang of bored, affluent teenagers initiates a violent crime spree. After three priests are murdered and the pope's safety is threatened, Father Koesler, the police, and the press work in unison to apprehend the culprit and prevent further tragedy before the arrival of the Holy Father. The gripping, suspenseful narrative is underscored by a fascinating philosophical and theological examination of the complex and controversial issue of papal infallibility. Kienzle continues to provide a superior brand of mystery with serious spiritual and religious overtones.
