Reviews - What do customers think about A Deadly Thing, They Say?
a deadly thing they say Jun 16, 2008
well written, interesting if you are Episcopalian....probably hard to understand if you are something else.
A wickedly fun read. Oct 28, 2007
A "who-done-it?" that picks up speed with calculated momentum as each new character is introduced. I had to admonish myself not to speed-read (like gulping dessert) so that I could absorb every meaningful clue as the tension mounted. A familiarity with church politics could conceivably increase a reader's enjoyment of this page-turner, but it wasn't at all necessary in order to imagine the gossiping and sniping that might well occur behind any set of heavily-carved wooden doors. Despite the fact that he has everything to offer and more, Morgan's reasons for keeping Peter at arm's length ring especially true. Mystery, intrigue, comedy, pathos and romance ~ what's not to love?
