    1. "He took from his pocket a photograph of the corpse. The face had that odd, disembodied look which even in a photograph tells you that the person is dead. This is the greatest argument in favour of the soul that I can think of. When people are alive, even if they are gravely ill and in a coma, there is still something in their faces, some tension, some spark. Probably a doctor could explain it to me, could give a reason, something to do with rigor mortis or the configuration of the muscles, I do [...]


    2. Not your typical Christian fiction, and not your typical mystery. The protagonist of Hamand's novel is an Anglican vicar who believes only in the myth of the resurrection, its essential truth for mankind, not its physical or historical occurrence. Then a man stumbles into his church during Good Friday services, dies from a stabbing, his body disappears, and he's sighted by various parishioners walking around the neighborhood. Does he really exist? Is he a hallucination? Is he a modern-day incarn [...]


    3. Originally written for a contest to write a novel in 24 hours under examination conditions, this novel is narrated by an Anglican priest whose Good Friday Service is interrupted by a man who staggers into the sanctuary and collapses of a moral knife wound. Later, the man's body disappears from the mortuary, & the priest & a couple of other members of his congregation think they see him about the city. Meanwhile, the priest is having a crisis of faith related, in part, to his beliefs abou [...]


    4. I read this book because I attended Maggie's creative writing workshop.I don't feel comfortable judging a writer's abilities (I was never very good at the style assessment). So this is a reflection on what I felt about the story itself, not how it was delivered. I always struggle with stories involving religion, it's just not something I particularly like reading. I thought the characters and the premise were interesting but I find stories about faith leave me relatively cold so that's why I onl [...]


    5. Gripping enough to be entertaining and entertaining enough to finish in one sitting. It's a much less complicated book than I normally read, but no less engaging. I felt the characters were kind of not so well developed, but what can you do in 200 some pages anyway?


    6. I was impressed by the writing style of this novel and the movement of the novel. I was less impressed with the theology, and it was probably this doctrinal "hang up" that prevented me from completely losing myself in the story.



    7. UK author. Man murdered outside of a church who seems to "resurrect" back to life. A little strange but good. Saw it reviewed in Booklist.
