In A Whispered Name, the "thought-provoking and nuanced" (Publishers Weekly) third installment of the Father Anselm thrillers, Father Anselm lays bare a gripping story of the cruelty and heroism of the First World War.

Father Anselm is deeply dismayed when a mysterious visitor to the monastery raises an allegation against Father Herbert Moore, the recently deceased founding father of the Priory and the man who shaped Anselm's own vocation. The claim is inconceivable, but Anselm soon learns that Herbert did indeed have long-buried secrets from his past--when he was known as Captain Moore--that he kept hidden all his life. Unable to accept the seemingly brutal details revealed about his mentor, Father Anselm investigates the meaning behind what appears to be a punishing decision in a cruel war. But something is strange about this case: the narrative told by its paper trail has too many gaps--and these omissions begin to look deliberate.

With stark evocation of a war that physically and psychologically scarred a generation of young men, A Whispered Name is a harrowing thriller that allows readers to gaze clear-eyed at the horrors of war.
