Mysteries Solved by Clergy. Really.
a book list by Leah Smith, librarian and avid reader
shelved under Mystery
Ok, these aren't real mysteries... but fictional mysteries that're solved by nuns, priests and various and sundry members of the clergy. Some of the more famous crime-solving clerics are Father Dowling brought to life by Ralph McInerny and Ellis Peters' fabulous Brother Cadfael. And because I culled these books from a much, much longer list I have, they're really some of the best.
