Roman Catholic priest Jerry Rome is looking forward to a relaxing sabbatical at Loyola University in Chicago. He’s set to take a summer course entitled “Sexuality and the Ministry,” and he anticipates the entire experience will be pleasant, informative, and filled with his favorite out-of-church pastime, tennis. When a fellow student is murdered, though, the real games begin. The victim’s body is found in strange condition, and the authorities are stumped. Luckily, Jerry already befriended a local Chicago police detective named Joyce Jackson. Maybe they’ll be able to solve the case together, but it soon becomes apparent that things are a lot more complicated than good guy catches bad. What at first resembled a relaxing vacation is turning into a dark storm of unforeseen events. Not the least of Jerry’s concerns is the sensual Juanita Cabalero, a dark-skinned and strikingly beautiful Colombian who may threaten Jerry’s priestly vows of celibacy. In order to catch a killer, Jerry and Joyce must use careful, skilled strategy—even when Juanita’s odd affections get in the way. Jerry may discover the truth about the Loyola murders, but will he survive to win the final, gory match?
