In a nursing home on the outskirts of Cork, an elderly nun lies dead. She has been suffocated. It looks like a mercy killing - until another sister from the same convent is found viciously murdered, floating in the Glashaboy river.
Why would anyone want to kill them? As she investigates, DS Katie Maguire discovers a 50-year-old secret that just might lead her to the killer...if the killer doesn't find her first.

Mystery and suspense that’s gripping & intriguing.
Having loved all the other Katie Maguire books I was really looking forward to listening to this one and was not disappointed. I see some people have passed comments on the narration. At first I admit I too wasn’t sure about Noreen Leighton’s narration, so I went back and listened to some of the previous Katie Maguire books. Having done that, I concluded the narration was pretty good. I can’t comment on the quality of the Irish accents but the narration was more than acceptable for me. You don’t need to have listened to any of the previous Katie Maguire books as any links to previous books are covered. Once again, it’s a gripping thriller though certainly not for the faint hearted, as the crimes are rather graphic. Katie is gutsy Irish Detective Superintendent, with a personal life which is always quite interesting and sometimes as graphic as the murders that she investigates. If you are easily offended then this is probably not for you, but if you have listened to any of the other Katie books you will no what to expect, it doesn’t disappoint, another great story that will certainly keep you wondering what will happen next. Loved it.
