The Rector is in
“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.
