Paul McCusker in his new book, “Body Under the Bridge book coverThe Body Under the Bridge” Book One in the Father Gilbert Mystery series published by Kregel Publications introduces us to Father Gilbert.

From the back cover:  A former Scotland Yard detective, Father Gilbert knows about death. But, now a priest of a modest Anglican church in the small town of Stonebridge, he didn’t expect it to show up like this–in the suicide of a man who threw himself off the church tower, and in the discovery of a two-hundred-year-old body beneath an ancient bridge.

The deaths are linked. The mummified corpse under the bridge, a murder victim, reignites a centuries-old battle between two local families–the Todds and the aristocratic Hayshams. Then both David Todd and Lord Haysham begin to act strangely. They are fearful for reasons they won’t explain.

When Lord Haysham is murdered, David Todd is the prime suspect. But Todd is maniacal, claiming great forces of evil are at work. An entire history of violence and depravity begins to emerge, interweaving the history of several local families with a secret occult society that engages in Black Masses. Has the Society emerged again?

Paul McCusker introduced us to Father Gilbert through a series of radio dramas That were produced on CD for Focus On The Family. Now Mr. McCusker brings the famous sleuth to print and this is an excellent way to start him off. This is more than just murder they are up against the forces of evil and spiritual warfare. Plenty of suspects, plenty of motive, now Father Gilbert has to narrow down the field to just the one who did it. Not an easy task. This is a hard-boiled investigation filled with all kinds of twists and turns that will really keep you engrossed. Take the phone off the hook, go to the bathroom and make yourself a bowl of popcorn as reading this book is going to command all your attention. Paul McCusker is an extremely talented writer who really knows how to tell a story that will grab you and keep you flipping pages until you reach the end.  “The Body Under the Bridge” is a very exciting book.  I am so looking forward to the next book from this very talented author.
