"It's 1960, and Agnes Ventimiglia, a plain young woman working at the Wayne County Clerk's Office, is suddenly swept off her feet by a kind, gentle, handsome young man. After a month-long whirlwind courtship, the special night comes when she expects he will pop the question. Instead..." "Dead Wrong, William X. Kienzle's fifteenth entry in the million-selling Father Koesler mystery series, explores a thirty-year-old unsolved homicide, and uncovers thirty years of repressed anger that explodes in revenge." "Kienzle's venerable priest and reluctant detective, Father Robert Koesler, is called to the side of real estate magnate Charlie Nash, a lapsed Catholic, suffering from emphysema and fast approaching death. Koesler expects to deliver Nash spiritual guidance, but Nash has something earthier in mind - he wants Koesler to intervene in the rumored affair between Koesler's niece and Nash's only son." "This interview starts Koesler down a twisting path, where he will discover long-held secrets about his closest kin - and expose, thirty years after the fact, what really happened to Agnes Ventimiglia." "Kienzle is in top form in this skillfully executed thriller. In addition to the eminently likable Father Koesler, readers will also find an engaging cast of supporting characters - including favorites Monzo "Zoo" Tully and Walter Koznicki of the Detroit police's Homicide Division. With Dead Wrong, Kienzle continues to build on the body of work that has established him as one of the masters of his craft."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
