His books are always interesting reads, so when I want a reliable book, he is one of my go-to authors.

The late Andrew Greeley had the type of brilliant insights into the human condition that one wishes were possessed by all members of the caring professions. The Bishop Goes to The University is a rather lackluster mystery by that author’s own standards, but it does a great job of delivering the goods in terms of spiritual, psychological, and political insights. His books are always interesting reads, so when I want a reliable book, he is one of my go-to authors. I picked up several "Father Blackie" mysteries at a thrift store recently and this is the first I've read.

So off he marches to Chicago’s south side and The University, where, in an office at the Divinity School, the extra cardinal is now posthumous, his head blown off by a shotgun blast. Though the setting for this sanguinary homicide is a sealed room, that’s not what truly wrinkles the bishop’s clever brow.

I had not read anything by Andrew Greeley for a long time, but a few days ago I remembered how much I used to enjoy his books - so I bought and read this one, and I'm glad I did. The characters are fun and the story interesting. If you want a light and relaxing read with some Vatican drama thrown in, you will like this book.

I can't believe I missed this one when it came out. Another wonderful Blackie mystery. I have read all of Father Greeley's non-fiction books. As with this one, I read to the end and desperately wonder when is the next one? What else is happening to the Ryan Clan and friends? The only negative is the book ended and I want more!

I love this series, Father Greeley was such a wonderful writer and a good Homilist as well. These books are always good to read and re read.

Andrew M. Greeley was a favorite Author of mine, he died a few years ago. Going to miss his Father Blackie stories.

I appreciate Andrew Greeley's sociology better than his novels, at least some of them. I do not recommend this book. It just didn't appeal to me.

I grieved when Greeley died because he illustrates truths so well. I always enjoy his books. They often seem like a big hug
I like Andrew Greeley and I like his Blackie Ryan series, but this is not one of his best. The Villain is too obvious and "redemption" which often forms part of the denouement of the better Blackie books is completely absent here. Much of the action happens away from the readers view and too much is about larger Anonymous organisations - into all of which Blackie appears to have infallible insight.

As I wrote, not one of his best
