    kindle À Turbulent Priests à Paperback ð Colin Bateman Turbulent PriestsAnother Bateman chilling but madcap romp but with Dan Starkey in a somewhat different situation in both family and environment terms He's on Wrathlin Island off the Antrim Close at the behest of a Cardinal concerned about a new Messiah and the island cult growing up around her I'm not sure I enjoyed it uite as much as usual perhaps its Wicker Man esue plot is too familiar
