Smaller and Smaller Circles by F H BatacanJun 07, ISBN Aug 18, ISBN It is one of the poorest neighborhoods in a city whose law enforcement is already stretched thin, devoid of forensic resources and rife with corruption. So when the eviscerated bodies of preteen boys begin to appear in the dump heaps, there is no one to seek justice on their behalf. In the rainy summer of , two Jesuit priests take the matter of protecting their flock into their own hands. Father Gus Saenz is a respected forensic anthropologist, one of the few in the Philippines, and has been tapped by the Director of the National Bureau of Investigations as a backup for police efforts. They, and the killer, are outsmarted by a dogged pair who are a welcome addition to the ranks of ecclesiastical sleuths: forensic anthropologist Father Gus Saenz and psychologist Father Jerome Lucero.

At the start of a crime novel, the reader sometimes experiences an unsettling feeling as the gory details of fictitious assaults and slaughter are rolled out. Serial killings, they assure him, do not happen in the Philippines. Fortunately the astute Director Lastimosa of the National Bureau of Investigations agrees that a serial killer is indeed preying upon young boys and, like Father Gus and his sidekick Father Jerome, he cares enough about these victims and their disenfranchised families, to do something about it. The lack of blood at the dumpsite indicates the murders took place elsewhere, with an apparent medical precision. It takes only a couple of red herrings before the super sleuth priest homes in on the killer and his crime scene. It is perhaps not too much of a leap of faith to believe that Father Gus could combine sleuthing with communions and campus.
