mark gaskill, author
Father Fetish: Book One, Something’s Fishy is the first in a series of Father Fetish novels; each explores a world that is intriguing, dirty, bizarre, sometimes deadly, but always exhilarating. Father Anthony isn’t a perfect priest. He’s ordained in the Roman Catholic priesthood, but he’s as human as the rest of us. He smokes, he drinks, and he struggles with questions of faith. His difficulties aren’t helped by the fact that his sister has instigated a one billion dollar lawsuit against the Catholic Church. Nevertheless, he tries to do the work he’s been called to: Father Anthony is a gifted psychologist, a professor at Georgetown University and a renowned researcher and expert on sexual fetishes and bizarre human behavior. He’s famous in his field, and that’s why the DC police call on him for help when they encounter a murder with disturbing features. Father Anthony and his crew of loyal graduate students venture into the DC underworld, where their investigation uncovers a cult of murderous fetishists…but these aren’t just any degenerates; they’re powerful people, politically well-connected, wealthy, and dangerous. Something is fishy about this case, and it’s up to Father Anthony and his students to figure out what’s really going on. His skill and loyalties will be tested as he dives into a world that is fascinating, titillating, exhilarating…and sometimes deadly. Father Fetish: Something’s Fishy introduces a unique character that you’ll want to see again: the flawed, brilliant, compassionate, and curious Father Anthony, who shows us that by understanding the bizarre, we gain insight into ourselves.
