Wealthy Mitchell Striker is found dead in his car, and to keep an innocent man from being convicted of the murder, Father Roger Dowling sets out to investigate the case

Blackwell North Amer
To Father Roger Dowling, St. Hilary's parish in Fox River, Illinois, seems to be buzzing with business as usual - until the wealthy retired investment adviser Mitchell Striker is found murdered in his car. The police suspect is a local gigolo, Jerome Winegar, who has mysteriously reappeared in town for the first time since he got a young girl pregnant and left her twenty years ago. The girl, Nancy, was Striker's daughter. The distraught teenager, following her father's instructions, gave up the child and married a reliable man. Now, with the Striker fortune suddenly in her hands, Nancy is beset by guilt and regret about her past.
Father Dowling knew Striker as a parishioner and is troubled by Jerome Winegar's presence in Fox River. As the darkly brooding man cuts a swath through the town's female population, trouble seems to follow: there is another murder, and though Winegar is arrested, the evidence against him does not add up.
