Clerical Detectives, and some other crime fiction, selected by Philip Grosset
to a crime fiction site now featuring
378 clergy and near clergy detectives

There are priests and ministers, clergy wives, ex-clergy, church workers, monks and ex-monks, nuns and ex-nuns, rabbis, a rabbi's widow, a clerk of a Quaker Meeting, Buddhists, Muslims, choirmaster/organists and even a few well-meaning witches. There are also a few other detectives from the past that I particularly like.
