Author's first book- "Outsiders had always distrusted the isolation of the place at Whitton. Locked away behind its tall gates, this college for priests...dedicating their youth and freedom to a mysterious unseen God. The battered corpse of Wally Scott lay gruesomely in one of the college pig-pens. Sergeant Ptolemy was tracking a homocidal maniac..." HUBIN, p.236.
