Thomas Zigal's novel "Outcry Witness" details a murder of a Priest found in his rectory, along with compromising videotapes. The tapes were removed and examined in private, covering up that part of the scandal, but compromising the moral integrity and the institution of the Catholic Church. Besides the issue of the Priest's morbid secrets, there is still a murderer at large, and we are taken along in his pursuit throughout New Orleans, leading to an explosive finale. This has been described as a "spiritual thriller" and a "gripping story of a clergy abuse cover-up told from the inside." The author lives in Austin, Texas.
