Description

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.

Nonstop feelingn of suspense

Based on its title; The Odd Fellows Society didn’t sound like something I would enjoy, I almost passed on it. I really need to stop doing this, as I have been proved wrong twice. Barrett is a talented writer, and I love his style!

This is not your typical murder mystery; starting in 1953, readers are taken on a fantastic journey through history and amazing finds, before the mystery is solved in current day. This story reminded me of National Treasure, the movie starring Nicholas Cage; with the major difference being, The Odd Fellows Society takes place in the world of the Catholic deity. The main character, Father Torres, is brought through several “scavenger hunt type” riddles in the hopes of solving the murder of his best friend. Through this journey, we learn historic facts about the Catholic faith, Washington D.C. and A secret society of Georgetown University. Some of which are quite shocking.

In addition to the impeccable writing; The Odd Fellows Society gives readers action, suspense, romance, and comedy. Yes, comedy in a murder mystery.
“So this Puerto Rican priest was standing on a corner in Chinatown with a chicken on a leash…”

I found this to be a smooth and quick read. At over 400 pages, it may not be a quick read to everyone; however, I found it hard to put down. The characters were well developed and the shocking twists throughout the story created a nonstop feeling of the suspense. I highly recommend this book to all readers. I don’t usually care for mysteries, but was hooked from page one. I rate The Odd Fellows Society with 5 HUGE Boundless stars because I absolutely loved it!

This did not affect my review or rating in any way, but I have to add; this is the first book I’ve read without any spelling or grammatical errors. Kudo’s to your editor!...Beth
