In the Name of the Father is the ninth book in the Major Crime Squad series written by Luke Heath.

Blurb Edit

A young prostitute is found dead, crucified, in Highgate, a well-known prostitution area. It doesn’t seem unduly significant until a second and third are found similarly laid out. During the autopsy of the first (and later similarly with the second and third), it is found that she was given the last rites.

 Memorable Lines Edit

  • "Do not fear death, because by it you shall acquire a better life.”

This is a paraphrase of a quote from St Cyril, said by Peter to his victims.

  • “You should not weep, but rather rejoice, and encourage me to suffer, in order that I may attain to the possession of that house which I so ardently desire.”

Peter repeats this quote from St Cyril, shortly before jumping to his death.
