The Rector is in Movie Development “Thompson’s engaging, high-energy Christian murder mystery gleefully mixes all the elements of a small-town murder mystery—gossip, foul play, backstabbing ... more mysteries, hypocrisies, and dangers add to the intrigue. Thompson’s tale looks intimately at what it means to function in a community— how a population can reveal and obscure the truth.” The Rector is being made into a feature length movie. How does that old saying go? “The book is always better than the movie.” Well, you should be the judge of that. This book is quick paced, well written with a wonderful cast of characters, a good plot, a really scary bad guy, and all the trappings of a good murder mystery (even some humor). Entertaining from beginning to end, and the biblical references aren’t in the least ‘preachy’ and only help to enrich the story. Publisher’s comment.
