Tony Brennan

The sequel to  Eminently Respectable Capers.

Well, the old cardinal, Charles Cardinal York, is off again on a series of helter-skelter escapades which nearly drive his one-time secretary, Bishop Sammy Spotels, crazy.

The bishop, with the new responsibilities he has with his promotion, has no time to spare, but Charles shows no signs of slowing down and involves the long-suffering bishop in a series of roller-coaster adventures, this time involving a whole convent of Sisters.

Charles, with his unusual pet, is a difficult man to topple but, this time, with Mother Angelica, who has a black belt in Karate, he might – just might – have met his match.



...What an imagination to blend all the mysteries of the Catholic clergy (for Protestants) with entertaining nonsense. How you contrived one plot after the other is ingenious - and so many! ... It’s no wonder the readers clamour for more. You know your subject - and nobody to my knowledge knows it better. A mischief-making prince of the Catholic church - who could resist it? You are truly a master craftsman. – Anne Mc Donnell, Sydney
