The Bishop at Sea by Andrew M. Greeley (April 19, ) on *FREE* shipping on qualifying happylifekennel.comcturer: Thorndike Pr. The Bishop at Sea also periodically includes Greeley's wonderful view of Christianity as having a gracious and forgiving God who understands and loves humanity. The Bishop at Sea is beautifully written story with charming characters, and an intriguing plot/5(14). Nov 01,  · Greeley's Bishop John Blackwood Ryan is famous for solving locked room mysteries. In Bishop at Sea the room is not only locked, it is guarded by two Marines and is on the USS Langley, an aircraft carrier at sea. Blackie solves the puzzle while the reader is treated to a very suspenseful time/5(5). Bishop Blackie Ryan investigates rape and murder on an aircraft carrier, crewed by 5, men and 1, women "teeming with hormones."

It is a novel that I can easily see winning the award (and it in fact did so,) given the way that it reflects the troubling headlines in our country and society these days, and given the depth, perception and sense of place with which the author writes/5.

Like the other book The Bishop at Sea is less a mystery novel than it is a sounding board for Greeley to discuss sociopolitical issues. In this case, the major issue is the role of women in the military. Frustratingly, the mystery aspects become less and less important to the book as Blackie gets closer to the heart of the evil on board the carrier. Bishop Blackie Ryan is feeling more than a bit out of place on the "USS Langley", an aircraft carrier on duty hundreds of miles from the nearest dry land. But the ship is in trouble--several of her crew have disappeared without explanation, and one dead officer has seemingly reappeared. Bestselling novelist Andrew M. Greeley has captured the imagination of the mystery reading public with the improbable Bishop Blackie Ryan, who works for the aristocratic, haughty, sometimes arrogant but often slyly good humored Sean Cardinal Cronin, the Archbishop of Chicago.
