Requiem For Moses

Overview

Everyone at the wake seemed to agree on one thing: The deceased, Dr. Moses Green, was a totally reprehensible person. As they confided in Father Koesler, their stories about the newly dead man poured out venomously. What might have been a simple, if nontraditional, Catholic wake for the Jewish doctor quickly turned into a maelstrom of animosity. Certainly Jake Cameron was glad Green was dead. As the doctor's partner in a string of nightclubs, Cameron was about to lose everything to the mercenary Green. The ...

Overview

Everyone at the wake seemed to agree on one thing: The deceased, Dr. Moses Green, was a totally reprehensible person. As they confided in Father Koesler, their stories about the newly dead man poured out venomously. What might have been a simple, if nontraditional, Catholic wake for the Jewish doctor quickly turned into a maelstrom of animosity. Certainly Jake Cameron was glad Green was dead. As the doctor's partner in a string of nightclubs, Cameron was about to lose everything to the mercenary Green. The doctor's former mistress, Claire, and her fiance, Stan, also felt abused: Claire's single missed period had ended in a secret hysterectomy Green had performed, which included aborting his own child. Then there was Green's daughter, Judith, whose engagement to an African-American attorney was met with blackmail attempts from her father. Green's own wife, Margie, who'd been cut out of her husband's substantial will only days before his death, also felt ill-treated by her physician spouse. But all was not as it appeared at downtown Detroit's old St. Joseph's church. Just before Father Koesler began his generic eulogy for Dr. Green, a miracle occurred, a miracle that everyone agreed was completely undeserved.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kienzle ill serves kindhearted Father Koesler, who has valiantly starred in numerous previous mysteries (The Rosary Murders; Call No Man Father, etc.). Here, the author railroads the venerable Detroit priest into an unredeemable position. When Moe Green's widow insists that Koesler hold a wake at St. Joseph's for her nominally Jewish husband, the priest is reluctant but allows himself to be convinced since he can find no Church law forbidding it. But he is alarmed at the crowd that shows up at the spur-of-the-moment event and regrets having also agreed to say a few words about a man whom he has never met and who was apparently morally corrupt. As Koesler begins to speak, Moe's sister Sophie makes a dramatic entrance, looks at her dead brother-and sees him blink. In the ensuing melee, the coffin falls from the bier, and Moe indicates he wants to be taken home. Now the hapless Koesler must not only explain to his bishop why he agreed to hold the wake, but he must also determine whether Moe's revival was a miracle, as a fellow priest asserts. Despite its wealth of Church law and theology, this latest tale will disappoint fans who have come to consider Koesler as more astute than he seems here. (Apr.)
