A Father Jake Austin Mystery

Father Jake Austin assumes multiple, often seemingly incompatible roles of physician, priest, healer and detective. Jake must serve the young Catholic parents of a comatose infant while working with the local chief of police to investigate the possibility of SIDS. Meanwhile, the Bishop asks Jake to investigate the reports of a Virgin Mary statue that weeps blood. Jake is also a full-time uncle, as his half-sister terminally ill with leukemia is living with her son in the rectory. With each case, Jake hopes for miracles.
