Stephen Fargo reminds me a bit of ¿The Pink Panther¿ in that everything that can happen to him will happen. Stephen is a former academic from the English Department of Wayne State University in Detroit. With the academic life behind him, Stephen takes on a job as a writer for a private investigation company. Sound mundane, doesn¿t it? Well, it becomes anything but. Stephen reviewed a file on Victor Blessing, a supposedly rich man filing a claim like any ordinary person. The next day, he reads an obituary about Florence Blessing. This piqued his interest so he asked to look at the Victor Blessing report again. Again, something that should have been simple became a murder mystery and investigation into a religious cult. When Denise a co-worker in the agency where Stephen works calls to tell him that Minerva, another co-worker, has died, Stephen doesn¿t believe for a minute her death is accidental. So he wanders into the estate of Leona Blessing, Victor¿s mother. Leona has asked him to deliver a letter to Victor who is supposedly in the Society of Trent. She provides him with a photo of Victor, money and the letter. From there, things become interesting. People are tying to kill Stephen and others are trying to keep him alive. Between a detective investigating the whole affair of the Blessings, Stephen¿s ex-wife and Denise who Stephen has more than a passing interest in, Our Father takes off in a ¿can¿t put it down¿ fashion. All I wanted to do was keep reading to see who was going to do what to whom next! If your enjoy a good intrigue story, get yourself a copy of Our Father and find a comfy chair, a cup of cocoa and a warm fire and settle in for a good read.
