Sometimes we can be truly fooled. Adam Trygg is the rookie cop
and Brenden Murphy the veteran; together they must solve a
gruesome murder in the perilous Hillside neighborhood of
Duluth. Within the tensions of the story are a cast of colorful
characters: a priest bound by the sacred seal of the confessional, a
beautiful prostitute named Holly, and—once again—the colorful
and capricious Father Mickey Moran. As has happened many
times before, the young priest finds himself in circumstances that
challenge both his cleverness and resolve.
Pat McGauley’s tenth novel is rife with passion, humor, and
intrigue. The Sacred Seal will keep the reader riveted from its
opening episode to its stunning conclusion.
