Office of the Dead
By Bernard Seif
If you enjoy monastic murder mysteries in the spirit of the famous Brother Cadfael PBS series, you will delight in Office of the Dead. Because the action takes place in contemporary times, rather than the middle ages, the reader is easily drawn into the dynamics of the plot and can identify with the characters readily. A bit of romance coupled with ecclesial tensions makes this story crackle with excitement. Readers interested in Eastern spirituality and alternative medicine will be grateful that they read Office of the Dead.
