In the tenth year of his police career, the Monk felt a calling to the Priesthood
because as a Police Officer, he was only dealing with the spiritual symptoms of humanity's illness not the real cause of the illness, the Devil's influence
on common man. The Monk had an acute and powerful awareness of the Devil's presence
- not a "6th Sense", but a powerful gift from God.
The Devil, who the Monk calls "The Ugly", is now and always has been active on Capitol Hill. In The Gumdrop House Affair many of his deceptions and ploys are revealed as the Monk and his faith stand against the "Wickedness and the snares of the Devil."
You will fall in love with Father Augustus O'Shea, Aunt Rhoda, Popcan Charlie, Paisley Bob Lewis, Frank the English Bulldog and all the people who visit St. Benedict the Moor Catholic Church.
The Gumdrop House Affair deals with the recent sex scandals in the Catholic Church and the effects in an honest blue collar layman's fashion.Written by a Veteran Cop the pace is fast, violent, profane, humorous and honest. A tribute to the men and women who give all to stay true to their Vows and Oaths as they protect a cynical public and a decaying culture.
