"Hamill is better known as one of our greatest chroniclers of New York City. In this, his first novel, rereleased on its 50th anniversary, he goes all hard-boiled noir, telling the story of a disaffected American priest and a plot to kill the pope."
--The New York Times Book Review, included in Honor Jones's "New & Noteworthy" column
"This reissue marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of journalist Hamill's first novel...In a new introduction, Hamill comments on the book's influences and what he now considers its primary theme: the loss of faith."
Praise for the original 1968 edition:"A Killing for Christ is a fast-paced, topical thriller...Hamill's prose is stylishly punchy...I would guess that Hamill admires Hemingway, Jimmy Breslin, and Mickey Spillane--not always in that order."
