Publisher's Summary

Dan Starkey arrives on Wrathlin Island to investigate the residents' belief that the Messiah is alive, female, and about to start school there: It's not a commission that turns up everyday. He finds a mess of religious intolerance and illicit drinking in a tiny community that is big on religious fervour but small on hospitality. Apart from the Messiah's mum of course, who's clung to her sanity. And her lager.

Just when you think it's all over....

Colin Bateman does his usual and creates a storyline which stretches credibility just beyond normal limits, but incorporates characters that have likeable and consistent personalities, making a thoroughly enjoyable mix.
Turbulent Priests maintained my interest throughout, had it's fair share of laugh out loud moments and a good few sharp intakes of breath too.
I've no knowledge of Scottish accents so I can't comment on accuracy, but the narration certainly brought the characters to life, though it had it's own particular and at times stilted style.
Overall a really enjoyable book, well worth a listen.
