Item description for Bad Catholics by James Green...
Jimmy, a former shady Catholic policeman, returns to his London hometown after three years to work at St Barts, a hospice for the disadvantaged. When one of the volunteers is murdered, police investigators realize Jimmy is back and want to know why. Jimmys tumultuous past is revealed, first as an alter boy studying boxing at church, onto his brief time thieving for a local gang.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bad Catholics?
you don't have to Catholic, Irish, or Ugandan Sep 19, 2008
Tokyo- This is one of those books that you know is going to end in a most satisfactory way-and it does-because James Green is able to keep dates and places, people and events, lives and deaths, good guys and bad guys, villans, and saints-all in one breath-that cannot help but leave you breathless. Mostly because it is about two important events-sin and redemption and the grey muck inbetween. The dialogue is so tothe point that one does wonder about the author-butthen you just want him to get on with it-and he does. Good book.
