Críticas:

"Beautifully written... Paul McCusker joins the likes of G. K. Chesterton and Dorothy L. Sayers with his wise and witty creation, Father Gilbert. Formerly a detective, this unassuming Church of England clergyman - Louis Gilbert - is expert in tackling many kinds of mysteries. Above and beyond his sleuthing skills and deep knowledge of human nature, Father Gilbert offers the added gift of spiritual discernment." -- Philip Glassborow, playwright and composer "Paul is a truly accomplished writer. His plot construction is masterly... Father Gilbert is a great creation." -- Adrian Plass, writer and speaker "If you like mysteries you will love The Body under the Bridge - but it's more than that; beyond the plot twists you will find deeply spiritual themes about good, evil, the family and the consequences of our choices. An incredible mixture of chills and thoughtfulness." -- Rob Parsons, Care for the Family "Paul McCusker weaves threads of the natural, unnatural and supernatural into a darkly tangled mystery for his detective-turned-priest Father Louis Gilbert, to unravel." -- Brian Sibley, author of Shadowlands "A world-wise but faithful priest who sees things, an ambitious viscount, a mummified body found under an ancient bridge, and an environmental activist who turns out to be something else altogether, meet to create a compelling connection between the past and present. Paul McCusker is a master at telling a good mystery that keeps you wondering what the next page holds. The Body Under the Bridge is wonderful development of lively characters in the midst of a chilling tale. McCusker has a great gift and you, the reader, are the recipient." -- Glenn T. Stanton, author, speaker and researcher for Focus on the Family

Reseña del editor:

A former Scotland Yard detective, Father Gilbert knows about death. But, as priest of a modest Anglican church in in a small Sussex town, he didn't expect it to show up like this - first in a suicide from the church tower, and then in the discovery of a two-hundred-year-old body beneath an ancient bridge. The deaths are linked. The mummified corpse reignites a centuries-old battle between two local families - the Todds and the aristocratic Hayshams - and the search for a legendary sword and ring that may have diabolical power. Against his will, Father Gilbert is thrown into a mix of local violence and depravity, and the underlying motives of both the living and the dead.
