I was so pleased with the ending of his book. It tied up a lot of loose ends. I really enjoy this author and her development of characters. THey seem like people you know. I can't wait for her next series. (You must read this series in order, this is the 3rd book).

Wasn't my favorite story of the series, but still a good read. A must read if you're following the whole story line of the foundation. The whole series is great, but this is one series I would recommend reading in order because of the subplot.

Acts of Mercy is the third in the Mercy Street series and, for me, the best of the three. As in most of Mariah Stewart's books, there is more than one story going on.Ben, the new investigator for Mercy St. is looking into the death of a soup kitchen volunteer and finds out that it and the other deaths that they tie in are all connected to him.
The seven Acts of Mercy of the church are the basis for the deaths. With the help of a priest and an FBI agent, the dots are connected and the deaths explained - if deaths like these can be explained.
Anyone who hasn't read any of Stewart's novels should read one and these are among her best.

Finally a satisfactory conclusion to the Robert/Beth/Ian conflict which started the series three books ago. This was a secondary storyline but much needed to close out the series.

The primary storyline was serial killer related and involved new Mercy Street agent Sam Delvecchio and FBI agent Fiona Summers. The killer was re-enacting the seven biblical acts of mercy: feed the hungry, bury the dead, visit the sick, clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, feed the homeless, visit the imprisoned. And so the murders begin...The clincher is that all the deaths somehow connect to Sam. This is a really great who-dun-it that keeps you guessing until the end.

The romance between Sam and Fiona is subtle but enough to put this book under the romance category.
