The Only Good Priest (Tom & Scott Mysteries) by Mark Richard Zubro



Mark Richard Zubro (Author). Book 3 of 12 in the Tom and Scott Mystery Series. Neil said this with no apology to the priest. Some bastard killed the only good priest in the whole fucking diocese. Another smack on the rocker arm. I winced. First, let me begin by saying that I'm really a great fan of Mark Richard Zubro's Tom & Scott Mysteries. I have purchased all of them except the most recent book, which I will get to shortly. I have always found them interesting, and always look forward to picking up the next in the series when I finish reading the previous.

Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (e. avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

First two centered around school and less sophisticated, don't get me wrong they had twists just like this one. Maybe it was the suspects that were more engaging.
Although I didn't care much for the terrorist aspect, they seemed to have little redeeming qualities .
He tried but they seemed two generic.
The ending. As always was a surprise.

Second, I am not Roman Catholic... recovering, lapsed or otherwise. Formerly Lutheran and now happily Episcopalian. I am not angry Roman Catholic zealot in any way, shape or form.

I was terribly disappointed by the constant negativity toward the Roman Catholic Church, clergy, religious people, etc. expressed by Zubro through his characters in this book. Even the title of the book reflects that negative bias. Of course I wouldn't want characters to turn a totally blind eye to issues within the Church... which include pedophelia, sexually active "celibate" priests, etc. I find it interesting that Zubro, through his characters, gets bent out of shape that the priests have a nice car, an answering machine, do not live in a hovel and even have shined shoes and a good suit (while his characters live in luxury with expensive sports cars, penthouse apartments, fully equipped home gyms and more money than they know what to do with.) While the author seemed to want the reader to share his feeling that the priests were hypocrites for living a comfortable lifestyle, this reader's reaction was the opposite... I kept thinking that Tom & Scott were the ones who were hypocritical, judgmental and bigoted.

Will I stop reading books in this series... absolutely not. As I mentioned, I like all of the books I've read by Zubro. "The Only Good Priest", however, is a HUGE disappointment.

With a host of gay and lesbian characters, this story moves in fits and starts through a well designed mystery. Good character development, though the story line has a few awkward moments which would have benefitted from good editing. There also were a few missing letters and misplaced words in the text which should have been corrected by an editor. At times simplistic, the relationships were interesting for the most part.

When I read the first five pages I knew I was in trouble. The writing throughout the book was very flat. Keeping track of all the characters was a monumental feat that left you wondering WHY they were actually written into this novel. About the only completely "fleshed" out character was Scott - The main character's lover who happened to be a Baseball athlete. Sprinkled adorations of this character created many stalls to the story line that I began to NOT care for Tom or Scott. I also found myself cringing at all the location descriptions given to the reader about Chicago. Again, this intricate location detail created a stall to my reading. Hasn't this writer figured out that less is more? Yet, I continued through the 182 pages HOPING to get some real writing style that would drive me to the entertainment value I get when reading a Joseph Hansen novel. How sad I was to see this book finish flat. Time to cleanse my brain with a Dave Brandstetter detective read. Oy....

I knew this book had to be good when I read the two reviews prior to mine on amazon.com. As a member of the gay community and a recovering Roman Catholic (who thoroughly enjoys the spiritually fulfilling practice of Catholicism I find in the Episcopal Church), not only was I not offended by anything in this book, I actually enjoyed it.
Like the movie "Priest," there are a number of Roman zealots of the "one true church" ilk who are out to write negative reviews of anything that tells it like it is where the Roman Church is concerned whether they've read it or not.
Mr. Zubro is to be congratulated for an engrossing mystery that will surprise its gay and lesbian readers in a positive way, a respectable entry in his "Tom and Scott" series of whodunits.
More power to him!
This has to be one of the dullest mysteries I have read. I felt like the whole book was a mere excuse for the author to express his venom against the Catholic Church. Characters have less personality than dry bread, they are nothing but extreme stereotypes with name labels. The events are almost non-events; things seem to happen but no real progress is made. When the murderer is finally revealed, a reader couldn't care less because it is difficult to remember who is who! And the writing style - after a while, I began to wonder if it was that flat and mundane on purpose!
I liked one thing about this book, though. My copy was only 182 pages long.
