A fast-paced, suspenseful plot, beginning with the brutal murder of a young nun and ending with a personal betrayal. Good book to curl up with before the fire, but don't expect to sleep until you've turned that last page!
A chilling novel of suspense featuring Boston medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles, on the deadly trail of an anonymous madman who's committed an unholy crime...of bone-chilling proportions...at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light...a cloistered convent, now stained with the blood of two nuns.
I was intriqued by the subject matter from the get-go! The characters are well developed believable.
This book had me hooked from the very beginning. When Maura, the medical examiner, is called to the Abby to determine cause of death of two nuns, she finds a gruesome double murder. The mystery thickens as she begins her autopsy to discover that the younger of the two nuns has very recently given birth. But what has happened to the baby and who was the father? The characters in this story are very interesting and the story is well developed. This is a page turner until the very end.
