Holy Orders, by Benjamin Black
Jimmy Minor is beaten to death and his naked body thrown into a canal. Inspector Hackett and pathologist Quirke look for answers in the stories Jimmy was investigating. Quirke's daughter Phoebe has more than her share of people following her, and Quirke's girlfriend Isabel Galloway is wondering what she got herself into. The 1950's Catholic church isn't looking too good in this one.
