A Corner of Paradise, A Father Bredder Mystery by Leonard Holton

Even more interesting than the mysterious and challenging crime being solved, is the personal story of the detective, his daughter and her new less-than-satisfactory husband. The story was written in the 70’s and the plight of the young girl and her husband seems unique to that decade. The author brings in to the story the dedication of those in the religious life by both Father Bredder and a young postulant, Mary.

The main point of interest (Corner of Paradise) is actually a corner of a Paradise Persian rug set with stones and unbelievably found burred in a grassy area. The author has a unique way of keeping your interest. He tells a great story. I’d have liked to hear more about how the young girl made out in her marriage to the young man who had been accused of the crime early on.
