Detective Inspector Tony McLean is on the case when the search for a missing journalist uncovers the scene of a carefully staged murder. In a sealed chamber, deep in the heart of Gilmerton Cove, a mysterious network of caves and passages sprawling beneath Edinburgh, the body is discovered in a seemingly macabre ritual of purification. But McLean knew the dead man and can't shake off the suspicion that there is far more to this case than meets the eye. For one thing, the baffling lack of forensics at the crime scene seems impossible. But that's just the first in a series of revelations about this case that seems beyond belief. Teamed with the most unlikely and unwelcome of allies, McLean must track down a killer--driven by the darkest compulsions and who will answer only to a higher power--until it's his own blood on the altar. Shocking and suspenseful, Prayer for the Dead, the fifth installment in James Oswald's internationally bestselling series, plunges readers into the bone-chilling darkness of an underground world filled with ancient secrets.

Throughout history Christians have prayed for the dead. This book challenges Protestants, who seldom pray for the dead, to begin doing so, and Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox, who pray only for the Christian dead, to include the unsaved as well. Gould discusses the meaning of prayer for final consummation of all things, growth of the blessed in heaven, purification of the imperfect in purgatory, and salvation of the unsaved in hell--identifying the necessary conception of the afterlife required by each particular prayer. He also reflects on the spiritual value of prayer for the departed--how it enhances faith, builds hope, and sharpens discipleship--and provides some sample prayers for public liturgy and private devotion. In essence, Practicing Prayer for the Dead offers an outline of theology from the perspective of death, arguing that prayer for all the departed is one aspect of a tightly knit web of doctrines. The argument, while revisionary in some respects, is orthodox, ecumenical, and integrative, engaging a range of academic disciplines so as to be biblically accurate, historically informed, and philosophically reasoned.

In this book Megan McLaughlin explores the social and cultural significance of prayer for the dead in the West Frankish realm from the late eighth century through the end of the eleventh century. She argues that the primary function of funerary and commemorative rituals in the early middle ages was to sustain the dead as members of the Christian community on earth, and to link them symbolically with the community of saints in heaven. Prayer reflected a network of relationships that bound together the intercessor, the dead, and the divine. Drawing her evidence from liturgical books, theological treatises, sermons, saints' lives, chronicles, and charters, McLaughlin considers both ceremonies precipitated by an individual's death and those performed for the dead as a group. After discussing the commemoration of ordinary people, she focuses on the commemoration of more powerful individuals and enumerates and classifies the meanings attributed to prayer for the dead in the period before the "birth" of purgatory. By studying prayer in its social context rather than treating it as a chapter in the history of theology, Consorting with Saints makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the social, economic, and cultural structures of early medieval society.

An FBI agent quits retirement to hunt a methodical serial killer with a passion for human blood. The man comes to slowly, feeling caught in a spider’s web. His arms and legs are secured, his mouth is taped shut, and the drugs are keeping him docile. When his captor returns, the man does not even scream. Roger Dyce removes the container of blood he has been draining from his prisoner, brushes the man’s hair, and prepares to indulge in make-believe. Once his prisoner is dressed exactly like his dead grandfather, Roger Dyce can eat. Only the man’s breathing spoils the effect, but soon the breathing will stop. Fifteen men have gone missing from this small Connecticut town, and only John Becker can bring them justice. An FBI agent who retired out of fear that he was too sympathetic towards criminals, he will push himself to the brink to stop Dyce’s sadistic game.

Even worse, Farrell knows the victim: Father Boyd, the man who forced him out of the priesthood eighteen years earlier. With no leads, Farrell must delve into the old priest's past, one that is inexorably linked with his own. But his attention is diverted when a pair of twin boys go missing. The Dumfries police force recover one in an abandoned church, unharmed. But where is his brother? Are the two cases linked, or is the church just a coincidence? It's clear someone is playing a sinister game - and Farrell can't help but feel it's directed at him. Either way, it's a game he needs to win, before someone else turns up dead.

The brutal murder of Dr. Azor Sparks in an alley behind a restaurant is greeted with public outrage and a demand for swift, sure justice. But the investigation into the well-known surgeon's death is raising too many questions and providing too few answers for homicide detective Lieutenant Peter Decker. Why, for example, would the family of a man so beloved respond to his slaying with more surprise than grief? And what linked a celebrated doctor with strict fundamentalist beliefs to a gang of outlaw bikers? But the most unsettling connection of all is the one that ties the tormented Sparks family to Peter Decker's own -- and the secrets shared by a renegade Catholic priest...and Decker's wife, Rina Lazarus.

New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year “A new masterpiece of American literature.” —Dennis Lehane, Entertainment Weekly “A Prayer for the Dying reads like the amazing, unrelenting love child of Shirley Jackson and Cormac McCarthy. It’s twisted proof that God will do worse to test a faithful man than the devil would ever do to punish a sinner.” —Chuck Palahniuk Set in Friendship, Wisconsin, just after the Civil War, A Prayer for the Dying tells of a horrible epidemic that is suddenly and gruesomely killing the town's residents and setting off a terrifying paranoia. Jacob Hansen, Friendship's sheriff, undertaker, and pastor, is soon overwhelmed by the fear and anguish around him, and his sanity begins to fray. Dark, poetic, and chilling, Stewart O'Nan's A Prayer for the Dying examines the effect of madness and violence on the morality of a once-decent man.
