Life is suddenly very busy for forensic examiner Jack McCain. He’s just left the crime scene of a murdered scientist - suspected lethal factor: anthrax - when his boss calls, asking Jack to head up the department for a while. And there’s also the matter of a dead nun that Jack needs to look into; Sister Gertrude has lived quietly in a secluded convent since early adulthood, so she can’t have had much chance to offend anyone. Could her murder relate to her Croatian background? And what is the meaning of the carved symbol on the slain nun’s leg?
Before Jack has much time to ponder the answers to these questions, the scientific community is rocked by another anthrax murder. Who but another scientist could procure or manufacture anthrax? Why are scientists being targeted? Who will be next?

"Throughout the book, Lord teases big meanings out of threatening spores, deadly representations of Christ, and a father's concern for his daughter. Altogether, a great little read." (The Bulletin)
"Lord has shown her versatility and strength as a writer by creating totally believable characters of either sex." (Good Reading Magazine)
