I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit different from the usual thriller of detective versus criminal. The main character was well developed and believable; he didn't actually realise what he was getting into but conscience directed him to continue. I confess to not reading every punch in the action scenes but I loved the way the themes of religion/slavery/terrorism were all woven together. An intelligently written book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988441934, Paperback)

Santiago Torres, the Jesuit headmaster of one of Washington, D.C.’s top high schools, knows two truths. First, historian Jasper Willoughs, his closest friend, didn’t toss himself off a dormitory roof. Second, a Georgetown University secret society—a running joke on campus—has blood on its hands. Torres’s pursuit of the truth embroils him in a bizarre and deadly scavenger hunt. The clues, scratched out on parchment by the mysterious Odd Fellows Society, lead Santi to risk everything he holds sacred: his job, his life, even the woman he secretly loves. As for his relationship with his God? Well, that’s complicated. A hold-your-breath thriller that explores America's national obsession with race, The Odd Fellows Society will have you looking at the U.S. capital—and its monuments’ secrets—in a whole different shade of black and white. Note: While this novel's protagonist is a Jesuit, this book is not a religious book.
