Book 7: The Seville Communion

As I read the Captain Alatriste series by Arturo Perez-Reverte, I noticed the name of this novel on the author's list of titles. I had never read it and got lucky when the local indy bookstore here had a copy.

The Seville Communion is another wonderful book by Perez-Reverte. Set in the modern era, the book deals with a crisis of conscience for a priest sent from Rome to Seville to deal with a church "that kills." The building, set to be torn down, is believed responsible for the death of two -- with more on the way. The priest, whose good looks are a source of attraction for the local women, gets more than he bargains for in his relationships with the people he meets, including an older priest and a young woman of "some fame" in Seville.

It was another wonderful read -- and I recommend it!
