Re: RARA-AVIS: Just curious

Interesting question, Christian P.I. novels. If questions of crime, ethics, and theology are your interest, why not include any crime fiction, cozy or PI, that takes up religious issues? Brother Cadfael series, Graham Greene's haunted criminals (Brighton Rock), Flannery O'Connor's guilty miscreants all touch deeper questions of faith and practice.

Also agree with the writer who listed some PIs who find themselves drawn to churches or confession. Even PIs who seem to create their own rules as they go along occasionally check them against a Greater Code.
