Grimm, forbidding, the monastery of St. Augustine offered sanctuary for sinners to repent and absolve themselves of evil. But for Brother Mark there was no absolution. He had killed. And planned to kill again.
One by one he stalked the gentle women who defiled the seventh sacrament...nuns who left the cloister. They died slowly. Horribly. With a last prayer on their lips. With the word betrayed written in their own blood.
Tough, young New York lawyer Brian asch wanted the killings stopped. But neither the police nor the church would help him. Now time was running out. For Brother Mark had found his next victim...the lovely ex-nun Zena, the woman Brian Asch desperately loved.
