"The book is excellent. The story is captivating, the plot winds like an old road—occasionally difficult to follow, but worth the effort. The characters come to life, move and speak on their own, and draw you further into the tale. I was absolutely enthralled. There are two poems in the book that are perfectly placed, and fantastic to read. I give the book 5 stars out of five. I couldn't stop reading once I got into it. It moves like an express engine until the end. Captivating."
"Father Michael Din, a young priest unsure of his vocation, wanders into a bar and into the lives of an assortment of characters. There are the two would-be Muslim terrorists; (Note: written before 9/11) Tory, a jazz musician; a Puerto Rican prostitute; her AIDS afflicted brother; and Toddy Muir and her estranged artist husband. The title comes from a poem written by Father Din, given to his elderly pastor, calling it a form of confession. A struggle between Good and Evil, this story has a highly satisfying ending."
