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.
