Publisher's Summary

The crime scene at St. Marguerite’s cathedral in New Orleans is shocking, even to seasoned detectives like Rick Bentz and Reuben Montoya. A novice nun named Sister Camille has been found dressed in a yellowed bridal gown and viciously garroted, her body covered with an altar cloth.

Valerie Houston is devastated by her sister’s death. For weeks, she’d begged Camille to leave St. Marguerite’s, where she seemed determined to live as some kind of martyr. But Camille had a knack for making bad choices - she joined the convent in part because she’d fallen for Val’s soon-to-be ex-husband, Slade. Convinced the police aren’t doing enough, Val begins to investigate. Slade, on a mission to repair their marriage, is determined to help her. But the deeper Val’s inquiries go, the more twisted the case becomes.

St. Marguerite’s is far from the tranquil retreat many believe, and everyone, from handsome Father Frank O’Toole to the mysterious Mother Superior, has their own agenda. Despite their closeness, even Camille had a hidden life Val never suspected. But someone knew about Camille’s past - and Val’s, too. Now she has no choice but to catch a devious, depraved killer intent on purging St. Marguerite’s of all its sins - before she becomes the next victim….

    "Gothic novel"

    I'm afraid this book was a struggle to listen to, although no fault is attached to the reader. The blame lies squarely at the feet of the author, who appears to have thought she was writing a take-off of a gothic novel. The writing was full of so many examples of over-dramatisation that it's impossible to pick just one on which to comment. The story held just enough twists to keep me listening to the end, but I'm afraid that there is no way I could recommend this book to anyone with a love of the English language.

    "DeVious: A Bentz and Montoya Novel"

    Was a bit disappointed as it was written almost making you think you were listening to the last book about these characters.
