Death in the Memorial Garden
by Kathie Deviny
Review: Father Robert Vickers, the rector of the Grace Episcopal Church in a working-class neighborhood of Seattle, has much to worry about. His weekly sermon draws only 60 or so each Sunday, and the average age of those attending is approaching 70. Father Vickers — he encouraged his parishioners to call him Robert, though few did — despairs that his cherished bell tower is crumbling and his superiors won't commit the funds to fixing it. And today he's burying another member of his church, the woman's ashes to be interred in a specially designated place on the grounds … where the remains of an unknown person have just been unearthed … in Death in the Memorial Garden, a stand-alone — though potentially the first in a series — by Kathie Deviny.
