Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Dorchester, Massachusetts, the nuns at the Convent of Our Lady of Good Counsel offer sanctuary to the terrified pregnant daughter of a Boston politician. In Cambridge, a small-time crook is murdered. Low priority trouble for a big city, but the hidden connection between the two events is deadly: blackmail, drugs, and big bucks for those who can stay alive long enough to collect.

At the center of things is Sister Cecile, a private investigator heiress, and Catholic nun, who does God's work in strange and wonderful ways. She heads a east that includes lawyer Paul Dorys, who loves her; Martin Moon, a blueblood who loves nobody; Sister Raphael, who loves everybody; and Lyuba McVey; whose heart belongs equally to booze and her murdered son.

It's a crew that requires Sister Cecile to call upon heaven for more help than usual. Heaven, alas, is in no hurry to give it....


A new entry in the popular nun-as-private-eye genre, as an award-winning mystery series starring Sister Cecile continues
