The Rector by Michael Hicks Thompson

My review today is on The Rector, A Christian Murder Mystery. I haven't read any of Michael's work before but I enjoyed this book very much. This story is well written; the characters are complex but intriguing, and I found the book humorous and entertaining.

The story is written in the first person of Martha McRae. Martha is a widow in the small town of Solo, Mississippi in 1950. Armed with her newspaper, a boarding house, and an inquisitive mind, she becomes obsessed when Rector Baddour dies suddenly at a restaurant. She is sure that isn't natural for such a young man to die so suddenly of a heart attack. Rumor had it that the rector was having an affair with one of the ladies in the church. Could her husband be behind the rector's death? To investigate his murder could destroy one of the women in her Bible study.

The church asks for another rector but are told there isn't one available at this time, but one shows up shows up at her door. Rector Cain is an unusual man, and Martha catches him in one lie after another.
As they try to check out his appointment things begin to happen. Another mystery unfolds on her door step.

A journey of how evil can easily take over a town. Satan does everything in his power to destroy one church and its people. I think you will enjoy this book. Just remember God has a plan for each of us and if you will trust Him He will fight the battle for you.
