    One thought on “DEROS (Father Jake Austin Mystery, #1)”

    1. DEROS: Date of Expected Return from Overseas. In John A. Vanek's first Father Jake Austin mystery, the former medic in Vietnam may physically be in the United States, but even in 2002, he still feels as if he left a part of himself behind.After his service in Vietnam, Jake became a doctor, and then he went one step further and became a priest in the Camillian order, one that specializes in ministering to the sick. He never expected to return to his hometown of Oberlin, Ohio, but here he is back, [...]

    2. Jake Austin has been a high school bad boy, a soldier in Vietnam, a doctor, and a priest. But not until his order sends him back to his hometown of Oberlin, OH, does he become a murder suspect. The day he arrives at the rectory is the same day as his high school reunion, after which one of his high school rivals is shot and an obnoxious woman is poisoned. The local police chief, his high school buddy, doesn't really believe that Jake is a murderer, but it's a long time since they played football [...]

    3. This is a good story written by a talented author. The mystery is clever and I loved the prose and the characters! The editing is also great – the characters and plot are tied together and there are no wasted words nor meandering story side-trips.Vaguely reminds me of James Runcie's Grantchester series, but the writing and plot here are actually better. I understand that two more books are in the works. I can't wait!

    4. The novel is aptly named and fascinates the reader page after page.Read full review in the 2018 March issue of InD'tale Magazine.
