Bishop Blackie Ryan is feeling more than a bit out of place on the USS Langley, an aircraft carrier on duty hundreds of miles from the nearest dry land. But the ship is in trouble--several of her crew have disappeared without explanation, and one dead officer has seemingly reappeared. The captain is a relative of Blackie's boss, Cardinal Cronin. So Blackie, troubleshooter and problem-solver, has been dispatched to the Langley, where he soon finds a mystery as deep--and dangerous--as the ocean.

Review:

Bishop Blackie Ryan--who spends more time troubleshooting and solving crimes than he does on spiritual matters--is back in action in a paperback original that's sure to delight Father Andrew M. Greeley's faithful fans. Sent by his boss, Cardinal Cronin, to the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Langley ostensibly to perform a confirmation, Blackie finds that his detecting talents are more in demand than his devotional ones. ("Those of you who have seen the film Pulp Fiction will doubtless remember Harvey Keitel. He was a sweeper, a person designated by God and his betters to sweep up the mess left by higher-ups in the outfit. That's what I am, Sean Cronin's sweeper") Disappearing crew members and other strange occurrences have led to talk of the new ship being haunted, a situation that dedicated debunker of demons Bishop Ryan can't resist.
