I received a copy of THE BODY UNDER THE BRIDGE by Paul McCusker from Lion Fiction via Kregel in exchange for an honest review. It is the second installment of the Father Gilbert Mystery series.
Father Gilbert is a former Scotland Yard detective who is now an Anglican priest. A man throws himself off the church tower and they discover an old body under a bridge. You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens!
I have gotten into mysteries lately. I am obsessed with the television shows Miss Fischer’s Murder Mysteries and Murdoch Mysteries, so I dove right into this novel. It reminded me a lot of Murdoch, because Father Gilbert uses his past police skills and spirituality to solve his case. It made it quite a different read. Other than mysteries, I also love a good paranormal story, and this one was that too.
I enjoy clean reads, and this is definitely one of them. I could see a family reading this together – my family used to read together every night. We would have enjoyed a story like this. Some of the content - mainly the violence - might need to be explained to younger readers to keep them from becoming scared.
