Overview

David Yonke's new book Sin, Shame, &Secrets is the shocking but true story of the 1980s ritual murder of a Roman Catholic nun that went unsolved for more than two decades — until cold case investigators arrested Father Gerald Robinson, a 66-year-old Roman Catholic priest, at his home next door to the Toledo police station on April 23, 2004.

Just over two years later, on May 11, 2006, a jury convicted Father Robinson of murder and the priest was sentenced to life in prison, a term he is now serving at a maximum-security prison in southern Ohio.

An award-winning journalist and the religion editor of The Toledo Blade, David Yonke covered the trial from gavel to gavel. Sin, Shame, &Secrets chronicles the unique and compelling case that involves startling evidence of a satanic murder, an examination of the cover-up by the Toledo Catholic Diocese, and an inside look at how cold-case investigators and the prosecutor's office put together an iron-clad case that resulted in a conviction after just 6 hours of jury deliberations.
