KIRKUS REVIEW

Father Joseph Bredder at the Los Angeles Convent of the Holy Innocents is again persona grata to Minardi of the police force. Minardi was frightened, and the girls and the nuns at the Convent were frightened for Father Bredder. Things kept involving and crowding him, and even the odd male singers in a newly formed choir were drawn from queer sources in the underworld fringe. There is an ingenious interplay of violence and death, but the best part is the humorous portrait of the priest.
