Father Dowling is used to unsolicited knocks on the rectory door, having done more than his share of counseling and assisting in delicate situations during his long career. So when Eleanor Wygant comes to visit Father Dowling he receives her graciously, though she is a stranger. As it turns out, members of her family are longtime parishioners of St. Hillary's, and it soon becomes clear that with family trouble brewing, Eleanor doesn't know where else to turn. When she enlists Father Dowling's help in persuading her niece Jessica to scrap the tell-all family novel she is writing and concentrate on more earthly pursuits, the venerable priest has little idea how enmeshed he is about to become in the family's edgy interrelations. For in recent years, the family has had its share of melodrama, including a philandering patriarch, a son who left the priesthood to take up with an ex-nun, and an underachieving academic, and it's up to Dowling to piece together their shared history in the hopes of putting their demons-and a vicious, previously unknown murder-to rest. In the hands of Ralph McInerny, one of mystery fiction's most beloved authors, Last Things is as delightful as his legions of fans have come to expect from the charming Father Dowling series.

in this series the author tells you about the violence, but it is not graphic, this series is very enjoyable.

The story line was great , the layout of the characters was a little slow and tedious. But it did keep you guessing until the end. I WILL probably read another of this author's work.

Father Roger Dowling, the priest of St. Hilary's church in Fox River, Illinois, is rather shocked when Eleanor Wygnant who is not a member of his congregation, asks him to stop Jessica Bernardo from writing a book about her family. Realizing that Jessica's doings are not his concerns, he refuses to talk to the woman. The Bernardos are going through a difficult time of it right now with the patriarch of the family hospitalized and not expected to survive.
His son Raymond, who he hasn't seen in a decade, returns home knowing that his father despises his for leaving the priesthood and running away to California with a woman he later marries. Eleanor is worried that once Raymond's father dies, the love letter she wrote him during an affair will become public and hurt her sister-in-law. Raymond's younger brother Andrew, a college teacher with tenure is being held in jail on a homicide charge. Father Dowling doesn't think Andrew is guilty and sets about to prove it.

Fans of Father Dowling will not be disappointed in Last Things. In fact, I found it better than most of the previous titles, because of its interesting characters. I liked the plot line following the development of Raymond, the fallen away priest, and also Jessica, the aspriring novelist. I found the insights into their thoughts the most interesting aspects of this novel. The "mystery", however, is easily guessed at way before Dowling "solves" it. But that is not why we read these books, is it? It is to enjoy the company of Fr. Dowling, Marie Murkin, and the denizens of Fox River for awhile. And that makes this a very satisfying read.

Book not as interesting as the Father Dowling show that used to be on Tv.
