Let These Bones Live Again (A Christopher Worthy/Father Fortis Mystery) (Volume 3) by David Carlson

Reviewed by Jud Hanson

Let These Bones Live AgainAllyson Worthy is a criminology student is finally checking off a major item on her bucket list: visiting the city of Venice, Italy. She’s obtained an internship with the Venice police to help catalog non-violent crimes against foreigners. However, when she gets there, her assignment changes to one of investigating some mysterious deaths. Simultaneously, family friend Father Nicholas Fortis has been asked by the Vatican to help investigate the theft of relics from Venetian churches. Neither one knows that their two separate investigations will soon collide.

Let These Bones Live Again by David Carlson is the third entry featuring Det. Christopher Worthy and Father Nicholas Fortis. Carlson is an accomplished professor of religion and philosophy at Franklin College in Indiana. He is a proponent of peaceful coexistence between different faiths and this theme is apparent in his most recent book. While not a particularly hard-hitting mystery, it is still an enjoyable one, with an engaging plot and well-developed characters. I definitely plan to catch up on the series by reading the preceding books and look forward to the continuation of this series. I recommend this book to everyone and give it 4/5 stars.
