The sleepy Irish village of Ballygorm is shocked one bright summer morning by the tragic news that one of their own, a successful young builder and devoted family man has been found dead, hanging in an apparent suicide.

But Parish Priest, Father Tom Regan is sceptical. Inspired by his TV detective hero, Fr Regan uses his twin role as confessional confidante and the village's religious figurehead to investigate the mysterious death and he suspects foul play.

Piecing the clues together, he finds that his outwardly pious and tight-knit community has been harbouring a murderer in a village where everyone is a suspect.

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite A man's corpse is discovered dangling from a rafter in a barn. The coroner rules his death as a suicide, but is it? The deceased man's priest disagrees and is fast on the trail of an unholy murderer in the engaging sleuth mystery novel, Sigil by Aidan J Reid. The whole village of Ballygorm is shocked when Lewis Tighe's body is found hanging in a local farmer's barn. The young man had a loving wife, two beautiful children, and he and his wife were expecting to add another young Tighe to their brood in a few months. Lewis gave the impression of being happy and seemed to have everything going for him. Father Tom Regan, the village priest, is not convinced that Lewis' death is suicide. A fan of the television detective, Bourbon, Father Regan takes inspiration from his fictional hero and begins investigating Lewis' death on his own. Unfortunately, he steps on a few of the wrong toes and becomes a target of the very people he is seeking. Can Father Regan find the killer before he becomes the next victim? Intriguingly set in a small village in Ireland, Sigil by Aidan J Reid is an original and irresistible mystery novel. It is a chilling murder mystery with an unconventional detective, and an evil killer waiting to strike in an unassuming setting. It has compelling characters, each having their unique personalities and flaws. Each person and their vocation are deftly woven together, depicting a captivating tapestry of the village and its inhabitants. Father Regan is an intelligent and likable character with an eccentric penchant for sleuthing and solving crimes. The beguiling rural setting realistically portrays the usual drawbacks and dramatic aspects of a country community; the perfect backdrop for a sleuthing priest.
