Turbulent Priests, Paperback

Turbulent Priests Paperback


Is she the new Messiah, or just a very naughty girl? Dan Starkey arrives on Wrathlin Island - meteorogically wet but alcoholically dry - to investigate the residents' belief that the Messiah is alive, female, and about to start school there: it's not a commission that turns up every day.

With wife Patricia and her baby Little Stevie, he finds himself caught up in a mess of religious intolerance, blokes with shooters and illicit drinking in a tiny community that is big on religious fervour but small on hospitality.

Apart from the Messiah's mum of course, who's clung to her sanity. And her lager.
