The Empty Confessional is a story of righteous vengeance-and its costs. Torn between his attraction to his former teacher and his calling, Gabe finds release for his religious and sexual frustration through violent penance-retribution against the abusers and rapists he discovers through the confessional and the pedophilic priests within his own ranks.
Investigating these assaults is Carla Jessup, a cynical detective with her own issues with the law. The result is a complicated relationship, in which priest and detective are alternately sources, partners and foes.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book
This book selection came from a recommendation from a friend and I was not disappointed…I was soon caught up in both the plot and the characters. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn it was made into a movie.

An exploration of human interactions
…The author has an acute sense of how people really talk to each other. The dialogue-driven narrative moves inexorably to a surprise “twist” conclusion. Highly recommended.
