Description du produit

Revue de presse

'An extraordinary novel... I found it moving, even ennobling... Because it is so fluently written, the reader drives on, not always fully aware of the full horror of what he is reading. I found that I had to return, several times, to some of the key passages to take in their true, deep and gut-wrenching import.' --The Sunday Herald.

'A scandal that reveals a hero' --Ireland Sunday Independent.

'Mouton has written much more than a novel. He is writing history that he alone can record.' --Reverend Thomas Doyle. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book is more than a novel. It's a testament to one of the most harrowing problems of our time. It's the story of one man's crusade to bring justice to the victims of child abuse. And it's a journey through the dark corridors of the oldest, richest, most powerful religious institution on earth: the Roman Catholic Church. Louisiana, 1984: a promising young Catholic lawyer named Renon Chattelrault agrees to defend the first ever priest to be charged with committing sex crimes against children. He knows it will be controversial. Most men would stand aside. But Chattelrault is not most men. With the evidence he has gathered during the defence of a man he abhors, he mounts a crusade to expose the vast conspiracy that goes to the very foundation of the Catholic Church. A conspiracy which has allowed those priests who have abused children to continue committing those crimes. For years, Chattelrault lives and breathes a fight for justice that will cost him everything he has. This is an astonishing story about one of the great scandals of our time, and one man's epic efforts to put things right. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As powerful a story as you will ever read 9 septembre 2012
Par Court Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I've been a reader all my life, and it has been years since I've read a book as powerful as this one. Ray Mouton was the Louisiana lawyer who was hired to defend the first priest in the U.S. to face criminal charges for child molestation, in 1984. As he came to realize that this was not an isolated sick priest, but that every Catholic diocese across the country and maybe the world harbored similar monsters and that the Church was determined to hide this situation at all costs, he began a dogged campaign to force the Church to deal with the problem and to save children from further harm. That campaign ultimately cost him his marriage, his profession, and his faith in the Church.

What is so unusual is that this man who lost nearly everything trying to do the right thing also turns out to be a writer of the first rank. He has produced a novelized, fictional version of these events that reads at a steadily intense pace, is stylistically at the level of great authors such as Harper Lee and Truman Capote, and is as hard to put down as the best John Grisham thriller. There are passages of great beauty along with parts that will make your heart pound and your mouth go dry. But the big difference between this novel and other crime thrillers is that it's rooted in the actual reality of what could be the biggest scandal of our times. I think this book will be seen as the definitive story of the clergy abuse crisis, and I predict it will be a worldwide bestseller.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not God's House 23 août 2012
Par Robert Blair Kaiser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In God's House is the novelized (and highly readable)version of the event that triggered the biggest scandal in the history of the Catholic Church in America. Readers will know that the author, Ray Mouton, was the attorney hired back in 1984 by the Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana, Cajun country, to defend the notorious pedophile priest, Gilbert Gauthe. As in any novel that spins off real events, they cannot help wondering what is truth and what is fiction. Mouton, the lawyer, claims this work is fiction. Even so, Mouton, the novelist, manages to tell a story that is true in a larger sense--about the Church's inability to do anything other than cover up the predations of its wayward priests.

The bishop's monsignor-vicar who hired lawyer Renon Chattelrault deceived even him. He refuses at first to tell him the priest's name or what he had done. Chattelrault wonders why the vicar would want to sabotage his own case? It's like the wonder of the private-eye at the beginning of "Chinatown." The private eye has to know more, even if it almost kills him. So, too, with Renon Chattelrault in this tale. He has to know more.

What he learns almost kills him--and it does kill his faith when he realizes that the Church that hires him is guiltier than the poor, sick priest. Church officials knew this priest was a pedophile before they ordained him. They know he is a child-rapist in his first assignment. Yet they make him a pastor in a second assignment, where he rapes more children. And then Chattelrault discovers they are covering up for more priest-rapists.

What kind of Church is this? Certainly not God's house. The book's title, then, turns out to be a pure irony.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AS A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN IT WAS SO RIVETING 30 juin 2013
Par Thomas E. Guilbeau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have practiced criminal law for 40 years handling 11 death penalty cases and thousands of major felonies. I am a voracious reader with an extensive eclectic library and the only crime fiction writer I enjoy is John Grisham...until I read Ray Mouton's "In God's House."

From the moment I started reading it, I was drawn into the case which unfolded like a Louisiana gardenia in the nefarious Bishop's court yard. Never has a writer captured the inner workings of what was the beginning of the greatest cover up of child sexual abuse crime in the history of the United States and possibly the world by the world's largest religious organization, the Roman Catholic Church.

Pitted against this is Renon Chattelrault who with his fading innocence but guile as a brilliant and masterfully creative lawyer matches wits with the power and influence of the Church. The action and intrigue are nonstop and addictive and I found myself up later than usual reading it. Towards the end, I rationed the book as I did not want to leave the presence of Renon who is destined to be in literature a truly authentic lawyer "Hero."

"In God's House" is one of the best books I have ever read. It has intrigue, drama, action, love and everything that makes a great book. The main character was played in real life by the author Ray Mouton, who as only a criminal defense attorney who actually lived the case, could thus fictionalize it so perfectly. Mouton in his first novel proves to be a master story teller on the same level as John Grisham and Larry McMurtry. I am glad to have found this exciting new author and look forward to his next work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great novel, gifted author 22 mai 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

***** (five stars)

Title of Review: Great novel, gifted author

First, for anyone to post a review admitting they did not read the entirety of the book they are reviewing is insulting not only to the author but to those the readers he seeks to influence after he admits he spent only a couple hours with the book, reading a few pages, before dismissing it.

Secondly, anyone who reads "In God's House" to the end will understand why this book has been universally praised without exception in major journals in the place where it was published (the UK) and distributed. Literary reviewers from Scotland to South Africa, and major journals (The Irish Independent, Reuters London et al.) and have praised the writing and noted the importance of the story.

The movie "Spotlight" deserved the awards it received. That film chronicled the investigation into the Archdiocese of Boston by reporters with the Boston Globe, people looking from the outside in, never getting on the inside of the church, and only able to report "what" happened, without a hint as to "how" and "why" these things happened in the Roman Catholic Church.

This novel takes the reader behind the walls of the church into the backrooms from a small southern diocese all the way to the Vatican and reveals how and why this crisis and scandal happened.

The author of "In God's House" has been recognized by international media as "the insider" in the origin and development of this hugely important historic story.

The leading authority in the world on clergy sex abuse, Fr. Thomas Patrick Doyle, has written of the author's battle to save children from the church - "Ray's incredible courage pushed him to go where no other person had been...to the foot of the massive behemoth of the Roman Catholic Church. . . to challenge it and ultimately to win. The reality of Ray against the world-wide institutional Church makes the image of David and Goliath pale by comparison."

This novel is a page turner (every literary reviewer concurs) and it is one of the best written novels by an American author in several years, a book that any serious reader should read, a novel they will embrace and recommend to others.

I have been a reader all of my life and I live a few short miles from where the story told in "In God's House" began in reality, a story that goes all the way to the papal quarters in the Vatican. What is written about what happened here is truth, and the balance of the book recounting events that happened far from here rings true in every word.

This first rate novel should be read by anyone seriously interested in fiction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 FIVE STARS FOR A TRULY GREAT NOVEL 30 mars 2016
Par Blaine Lourd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
“In God’s House” is one of the most well written works by an American novelist in years and it is an important book as it chronicles the origin of one of the most significant historic stories of our times, the clergy sex abuse scandal in the Catholic church, covering nearly 20 years and taking the reader from the first day of the first case to the highest reaches of the Vatican in Rome.

What is really important about this book is the credibility and authority Ray Mouton possesses to pen this novel. Those who have followed this story know Mouton has repeatedly been identified by media nationally and internationally and by authors of nonfiction books as an “insider” in the origin and development of the clergy abuse scandal.

Fr. Tom Doyle, the leading expert worldwide, a man who has testified on behalf of victims in over 1,600 legal cases worked with Mouton daily for years and he has written about Ray Mouton, Mouton's book, and the crisis – “This plague of destruction would have continued unchecked had there been no Ray Mouton. From the outset Ray was at the center and on the edges of this rapidly developing storm. The reality of Ray against the world-wide institutional Church makes the image of David and Goliath pale by comparison. There are countless children who may never know Ray’s name but whose childhood will bear the result of his courage, his insight, his determination and his faith. Ray fought fiercely to save children from the church. I think Ray views his many years of work in writing this novel as if he were presenting a gift to the victims of clergy abuse, some who have no voice of their own, but I think this book may be a gift to the world."

Combined with those incredible credentials and the strongest endorsement possible, one reading these pages also discovers that in the twelve years Mouton spent crafting this book, he brought to it great gifts as a writer, creating a powerful, suspenseful, fast-paced narrative that moves the story like a freight train as the pages turn themselves.

As a writer, I have read many books on a lot of subjects. None hit me any harder than “In God’s House” or stayed with me longer. This is a work that I feel should be read by anyone interested in truth, for as the author correctly wrote in describing “In God’s House,” “this is a book about truth.”
