"Priest-killer"
When a young priest is killed on the alter of his new church, police chief Robert Ironside and Fr Samuel 'Sarge' Cavanaugh (a nickname given to him because of his pre-priesthood days as a policeman) join forces to find the killer. Ironside warns the priest not to interfere with police procedures but recognises, when two more priests are killed, that 'Sarge' could add specialist insight into the investigation.
