An intriguing blend of glory and gore from the master of the theological mystery.BooklistAs usual, Kienzle's book is graced by fine touches. Chicago TribuneFrom William X. Kienzle, author of the classic mystery, The Rosary Murders.When a prostitute is murdered after midnight on the mean streets of Detroit, it usually isn't front-page news. But when a prostitute's body is found dressed in a nun's habit outside one of Detroit's oldestand at one time most prestigiousCatholic churches, it strikes the interest of the curious minded. And when that prostitute is Helen Donovan, a call girl who numbered among her clientele some of the city's most powerful figures, and whose sister is the most influential nun in the Detroit archdiocese, the prostitute's death takes on a significance that no one can ignore.Chameleon, William X. Kienzle's thirteenth installment in the enormously popular Father Koesler mystery series, delves into the worlds of Catholic Church policies and Detroit's deteriorating core city to try to unravel a murder long on motives, but short on suspects.As tensions mount, Kienzle's venerable priest/sleuth, Father Koesler, is called on by the Detroit Homicide Division to lend his religious perspective to the investigation. Kienzle again endows Father Koesler with the kind of thoughtful insight and compassion that allow him to see into the heart of the case at hand. Chameleon is filled with the sense of authenticity that comes from Kienzle's meticulous research and his determination to write about the two things he knew best: Detroit and the Catholic Church.
