Editorial Reviews


"Father Bredder's eighth secular excursion into the world of murder and mystery begins with a death at a string quartet concert. The background of violins and their makers and repairers is fascinating."--Saturday Review

"...the atmosphere is seductive... Father Bredder, who has played detective before this, is the kingpin of the narrative, and then there is a perpetual chorus composed of nuns, who bear modest witness; assorted onlookers and suspects; corpses; and, of course, the murderer, mysterious as the graves he is busily filling, one by one."--
The New Yorker

"Father Bredder is very down to earth about his faith: 'Science is not enough for us, nor ever will be, no matter how much we know. It is not enough for us because it reduces everything to the level of human understanding and there are many things far beyond our understanding which although true will remain a mystery for us. Faith has wings but reason crawls and often in the wrong direction.' "--
Clerical Detectives

"An appealing murder mystery."--
Publisher's Weekly

From the Author

"I have been a student of the violin, studying to play that instrument and also the viola, for thirty years, on and off," writes Leonard Holton. "I am still taking lessons and play viola in a local symphony orchestra comprised of college students and the local citizens.

"These efforts to learn to play brought me in touch with many teachers. One among them introduced me to a man who is now a dear friend-Benjamin Koodlach who appears in
A Problem in Angels. Bennie is one of the top repairers of violins, cellos, etc., in the United States.

"People send him instruments from places as far as New York and Chicago to work on, such is his reputation. He told me all I really know about violins and violas. It isn't much; not much more than an acquaintance with the better known Italian makers. But whenever Bennie has in his hands a fine Cremona instrument, he calls me up and I go around to see it. Recently he had in his shop a fine Stradivarius of 1721 (The Duke of Cambridge Strad), a Guadagnini of 1774, and a Guarnerius del Jesu so I was able to handle and hear played three of the finest instruments in the world today.

"There is one picturesque incident connected with my affection for violins and violinists. As a young man, during the Great Depression, I played a violin in the streets of England for a living-and did rather well."
