Mystery Author The Rev. Andrew M. Greeley Critically Injured

Several Chicago area newspapers including the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times are reporting that priest and bestselling mystery author Andrew M. Greeley is in critical condition after suffering head injuries from a fall. Rev. Greeley, 80, was exiting a taxi about 3:30 p.m. Friday at the Rosemont CTA Blue Line station when his clothing got stuck on the door as the driver pulled away, according to a Rosemont police spokesman.

Greeley, a Catholic sociologist, has written more than 120 books, including dozens of mysteries spanning two series, one featuring Father John Blackwood "Blackie" Ryan and another featuring professional singer and sometime psychic Nuala Anne McGrail.
