"Michelle Blake's series about an Episcopal priest...stands out for a couple of reasons--besides the essential one of being written with intelligence and grace. These books take a long view of crime, finding meaningful lessons in antisocial acts."
New York Times Book Review, Marilyn Stasio
"Outstanding...eloquent prose, astute scholarship, convincing characters and vivid settings make this a remarkable work, raising the genre of the parish mystery to new heights."
Publishers Weekly, The Book of Light (starred review)
