Introducing Malachy’s Gloriam

From Chicago-based author C.M. Martello comes the riveting mystery story of  an Italian-American priest, a serious accusation that rocks Chicago's Catholic community and a disbarred defense attorney. 
"...Martello creates a setting that is as detailed and vibrant as his characters. Chicago comes alive in the novel...Martello knocks one out of the proverbial ballpark..." 
- The San Francisco Book Review

“...An amazing first novel...What makes Malachy’s Gloriam such a good read is the super colorful cast of characters. Characters they are, but each one is very realistic..."
 - Viga Boland, Readers’ Favorite
"...The action moves fast, there are great side characters, and justice triumphs in the end. I recommend the book as a very enjoyable detective book...”   
 - Ralph Peterson, Manhattan Book Review
