Call No Man Father: The Father Koesler Mysteries: Book 17 by William Kienzle

"Kienzle has written another supremely intelligent puzzler featuring his perceptive priest, Father Robert Koesler, and bolstered by a strong cast of engaging supporting characters." —Booklist

"Father Koesler is on the case, thank God." —Baltimore Sun

From William X. Kienzle, author of the classic mystery, The Rosary Murders.

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 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.

Naturally, venerable Father Koesler finds himself in the thick of things. As preparations for the papal visit transpire, he becomes a pawn in Church political games. At the same time, he is a key source of information in the police security efforts.
