A wonderfully written thriller with amazing detail by the author. I'm in awe of his research and experience which he brings to the characters and story. It reads like first-hand information, you are there.

New York City Mayor Silver created a special unit within the New York Police Department, one that answers only to him. The special unit, run by Paul Dentin an inspector of detectives, takes on the political hot potato cases so high profile nobody else wants them. Paul¿s latest case has him pitted against the archdioceses of the Catholic Church and one of its factions, The Opus Christi.

The Opus Christi, though part of the church, is a separate and very secretive sect that answers to its own leaders. When one of its minions is found with her stomach gutted because she was carrying heroin smuggled in from Columbia, the leaders won¿t give Paul and his team access to the nun who accompanied the victim. Four catholic priests are killed in cold blood with all of them afflicted with AIDS but the archdiocese does all in its power to block that investigation as well. Paul has to resort to some very creative police techniques to flush out the killers, especially since one of them threatened his ten-year-old daughter.

William Hefferman has written a fascinating police procedural that partly uncovers the veil that hides the inner workings of the Catholic Church. There are various sub-plots that ties essentially into the main story line and the characters that populate this tale run the gamut of the human psyche. Though some readers might feel offended, most of the audience will believe that UNHOLY ORDER is the author at his talented best.
