The Sixth Lamentation. I extend my warm gratitude to Ursula Mackenzie who helped me to produce the book I wanted to write as opposed to the one I had written; to Pamela Dorman for insightful analysis and championing this novel in the United States; to Araminta Whitley and Celia Hayley, both of whom have brought me to where I now am; to Nicki Kennedy and Sam.

Father Anselm investigates the atrocities of war in this gripping mystery, proving that no one can truly escape the darkness of their past. An ingenious, gripping thriller for readers of . James and William Boyd

Instead, he did as he was told and took the 1. 5 . flight from Heathrow to Fiumicino.

Instead, he did as he was told and took the 1. He was to stay with a community of friars at San Giovanni’s, an international house of studies incongruously. situated between two restaurants near Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, beneath the Janiculum Hill. A priest would collect him. Anselm was standing in the arrivals area in his long black habit, beginning to feel the heat, when he was greeted from behind by a back-slapping friar in cut-off shorts and a T-shirt: ‘Hello there, I’m Brandon Conroy But call me Co.

Loose ends are only tied up in books,’ she said quietly, and she pushed aside, probably for the last time, the lingering, irrational hope that her life might yet be repaired by a caring author. Agnes stopped and laughed. She turned, walked back to the newsagent, and bought two school notebooks.

What should you do if the world has turned against you? When Father Anselm is asked this question by an old man at Larkwood Priory, his response, to claim sanctuary, is to have greater resonance than he could ever have imagined. For that evening the old man returns, demanding the protection of the church. His name is Eduard

The 6th Lamentation is beyond a doubt the finest literary mystery I have read of this Era. For 25 years I taught classical literature in high school honor classes, so feel qualified to give an experience opinion. The suspense of the plot serves the depth of the subject matter which touches on moral questions issued by Occupation of WW 2 ,the Roman Catholic Church and the Underground. The setting is England and France . The characterization and plot is superb.

This book, The Sixth Lamentation, and its companion books,The Gardens of the Dead, and A Whispered Name, were charming on two counts--elegant and beautiful prose, which cannot fail to please--and then, the carefully wrought plots, each one presenting our Father Anselm with a conundrum that only he--with his double expertise of priest and lawyer--can solve. They felt very true, and there was none of that perverse befuddlement of the reader that is so daunting in some of the modern authors I (attempt to) read. I loved the depiction of the contemplative religious life--absolutely foreign to me, but as a vision of peace and tranquility, it was very compelling. Not to mention the gathering of the orchard fruits, the bee keeping, the lovely country scenes. One of the phrases -in the Lamentations book--keeps recurring to me; referring to Anselm's occasional vision of God: "And sometimes, the Lord of the Dance brushed by". It struck me as a particularly apt way of describing his accidental access of grace.

A friend has recommended "A Whispered Name," and when I went to buy it I noticed that it was the third of Brodrick's books, so I decided to get this one first. I was not disappointed. It's a great mystery, and I really like the character of Anselm. I'm looking forward now to reading his other books.

This book is out of print but Amazon still found a copy for me. I picked it up because I liked the author's second book enough to go back and read his first. The important thing to understand is that Brodrick is not writing whodunnits. It is not an action/adventure mystery. No doubt I like his writing because I, too, am a lawyer who sometimes wonders about the spiritual aspects of what I do. Brodrick presents us with difficult moral choices and traces the outcome of decisions. The heros are not always as heroic as we think they are and the bad guys may have redeeming virtues just like in real life, and, like in real life, it is difficult to figure it all out. There is a lot of meandering made necessary by the examination of the moral questions. One of the satisfactions of detective fiction is that the bad guys get caught. That usually happens here too. Only for the morally reflective

Told from the viewpoints of multiple actors in this story, the overlapping lives of several families are deftly created. You will not feel you have wasted your time if you enjoy books of fiction.
In many ways this is a beautifully written book exploring a very relevant topic. However, the plot is at times difficult to follow and it is hard to sort out all the characters. The hallmark of a Barrister?
