Grove stayed in Florence and I visited him several times. He was living in a beautiful villa in the hills south of the city.

That's a complicated question requiring a long answer.

D'Agosta cleared his throat. "Where'd he get his money?"

That's a complicated question requiring a long answer.

Why did he call you?

Grove felt betrayed by God. He became . . . well, you certainly couldn't call him an atheist or an agnostic. Rather, he picked a fight with God. He deliberately embarked on a life of sin and violence against God, which in reality was a life of violence against his own higher self. He became an art critic. Criticism is a profession which allows one a certain license to be vicious outside the bounds of normal civilized behavior. One would never tell another person in private that his painting was a revolting piece of trash, but the critic thinks nothing of making the same pronouncement to the world as if he were performing a high moral duty. There is no profession more ignoble than that of the critic-except perhaps that of the physician presiding at an execution.

D'Agosta mumbled his thanks. For the second time that day, he found himself feeling embarrassed. He would have to talk to Pendergast about sounding off about his abortive writing career.

Pendergast nodded.

Father Cappi laughed. "Very true, Sergeant D'Agosta."

We'll take as little of your time as possible. Perhaps we should begin with the telephone call.

I see, murmured Pendergast.

Is that so I love detective stories. Give me a title.

Quite all right. I just hope I can be of help. This is a tragic business.

He was very happily married. He adored his wife. And then, quite abruptly, she left him, ran off with another man. To say that Grove was devastated is not saying enough. He was destroyed. And he focused his anger on God.

Quite all right. I just hope I can be of help. This is a tragic business.

Pendergast nodded at him to proceed.

You're right there, said D'Agosta with feeling. "Those who can't do, teach, and those who can't teach, critique."

Pleased to make your acquaintance. The priest crushed his hand in greeting.This is no gentle lamb of God, thought D'Agosta. He eased down in the chair, shifting, trying hard to get comfortable. He failed. The room, despite the sunny day outside, felt cold and damp. God, he would never make a good monk.

Angels of Purgatoryis his latest.
