The Big Sin

(1952)
(The first book in the Father Shanley - Sammy Golden Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
When a determined Irish Catholic priest and a tough Jewish police detective team up to solve the murder of a gorgeous showgirl, the evidence of violence and corruption they uncover tears the town apart!

Of his fast and unusual thriller Jack Webb writes: "The Big Sin was written because I needed faith in myself. So I wrote a story about faith ... For all the gaudiness my story may wear as a mystery filled with violence, good is good in it, and bad, bad, ant there's strength enough in the simply faith within to swing the outcome."

Father Shanley refused to believe that Rose had committed the big sin.
