I usually don't read a book from a series this far ahead if I haven't read the first ones, but I picked it up and thought it sounded good so I popped it in the player and got caught up in the story. I'll now have to backtrack and find the earlier adventures of Bishop Blackie Ryan.

Because of his apparent notoriety at solving mysteries, Bishop Ryan is ordered by his superiors to go to Paris and find a missing Dominican who has quite a following including his on TV show.

The investigation is interesting and the solution surprising…great fun.
