The Bells of St. Luke Father Dominic dies from a fall while winding the ancient clock in the bell tower of St. Luke, and the investigation reveals that it was no accident.

From the first page the reader is drawn to Vince, a highly intelligent but deeply disturbed individual. The action in this haunting story concentrates on the tormented figure of Vince Ruperti, and when Father Sebastian, the new young priest is found bludgeoned to death, Vince once more is implicated. Wracked by recurring phases of delusion alternating with sanity and guilt, confusion and paranoia, he struggles to bring order to his tortured mind.
