Ashes to Ashes by Emma Lathen

Ashes to Ashes is Emma Lathen at her best. Sharply observed social commentary supports the mystery. In this novel, the focus is the post-Vatican II changes to Catholic communities in America. John Putnam Thatcher is typically ironic and controlled. Miss Corsa is the perfect secretary. If only banking really were this smart, compassionate and principled.
