Overview



While in Chicago, right-wing televangelist Bruce Mucklewrath is attacked and his daughter killed. Sensing a potential time bomb, and with Mucklewrath creating great pressure, the police brass assign the case to Detective Paul Turner whom they trust with sensitive matters. During their investigation, Turner and his partner discover that other right-wing bigots have been suffering odd attacks, and they begin to suspect a conspiracy of vengeance, perhaps even from the gay community. This is an uncomfortable thought for Turner, who is himself gay, but when Turner is attacked and his two sons threatened, he has to enlist the help of people in his close-knit neighborhood, as well as his contacts in the gay world, to find the solution in time.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hostilities between gay and straight communities as well as the former group's internal differences are the predominant themes in this fast-moving Chicago-based police procedural. The father of two boys, one with spina bifida, Paul Turner juggles his duties to his family, his job as a police detective and the fact that he is gay. After the daughter of Bruce Mucklewrath, an arch-conservative California preacher turned senator, is shot to death before her father's eyes, the killers ask him, ``Sorry now?'' But when Turner and his partner try to question members of Mucklewrath's organization, they are stonewalled. Turner resists the suggestion that a radical gay organization is behind the murder--until a friend, a reporter for the Chicago Gay Tribune , tells him that a previous criminal act against another homophobe was also accompanied by the message ``Sorry now?'' Then an indigent, AIDS-infected informant claiming to know who slew the girl turns up dead, Paul receives threats against his sons, and his superiors crank up the pressure. Zubro's The Only Good Priest blend of personal and political concerns makes this story compelling and even urgent. Sept.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Paul Turner is a Chicago detective with two sons, who happens to be gay. When Bruce Mucklewrath, a televangelist with a message that leans towards gay-bashing, ends up the victim of a crime, his daughter dead, Paul and his partner are called in to lead the investigation.<BR/><BR/>What they discover are a number of crime scenes against those who are homophobic, all with the cryptic message of "Sorry now, aren't you?" Paul struggles to tie the cases together with a possible conspiracy against the gay community, while dealing with his kids and a possible relationship with handsome doctor George Manfred.<BR/><BR/>The book had a great premise, and the storyline was well-thought out, but the lack of real characterization and an abundance of typos in the book kept me from truly enjoying it. I'll still probably look for the second book in this series, but it wasn't one of my favorite reads.
