Former FBI agent Sam Delvecchio brings the keen skills of a profiler to his new position as a Mercy Street Foundation operative and not a moment too soon. His first assignment, the cold-case murder of a local soup kitchen volunteer, has all the telltale signs of a serial killer's work.

That grim suspicion is confirmed when FBI agent Fiona Summers shares the details of two other killings with eerie similarities to Sam's case: The bodies in all three cases have been carefully posed. And when a fourth victim is discovered, the two investigators realize they're pursuing the same twisted quarry.

Local parish priest Kevin Burch, Mercy Street founder Robert Magellan's cousin, recognizes the posings for what they are: The killer is staging the church's seven Acts of Mercy ( Feed the hungry, clothe the naked ) with the bodies of his victims. But as Sam and Fiona race to prevent the final three murders, taunting messages from their target lead to the most chilling realization of all.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Willow | 2/1/2014

    " I liked this one much better than Mercy Street. I will say it was a bit predictable as to who the bad guy was but the characters were well developed and the storytelling good enough that the lack of surprise didn't bother me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liberty | 1/26/2014

    " This is a series that I really enjoy...I enjoy the suspense and character development that Stewart creates. I can't wait to see what case the Foundation will take on next and who will become part of the family. Lots of good surprises in this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 1/20/2014

    " I'm giving it two stars because I can't even remember that I read it, much less any details. So i'm either getting old and senile, or the book wasn't very remarkable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy Kester | 1/10/2014

    " The final installment of the Mercy Street series and it all comes together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 12/20/2013

    " I really wasn't convinced by the set-up (millionaire funding a private cold-case investigative unit) and it felt like writing by numbers. None of it felt real, I could see the writer plotting away beneath the sentences. It also seemed as if every other character had a wife/loved one who had been murdered. Don't think I'll be seeking out any more from this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 12/8/2013

    " Wish there were more in the series. This is a good one. 3.75 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryHelen | 11/16/2013

    " This third of the Mercy series is another very good mystery and gives some resolution to Robert Magellan's situation, which has permeated through all three books. I enjoyed all of these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 P.e.lolo | 10/5/2013

    " Really liked this story with all turns it took. Good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 9/28/2013

    " This started out pretty slow, but as I progressed it got better. The plot line was a puzzle that I enjoyed putting pieces together. The killer was a complete surprise, which I enjoyed. I am not a fan of when you know who the killer is 4 chapters in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 9/28/2013

    " A great follow up on the Mercy series. The characters are all interesting and the plot was good. I hope she brings the characters back in later novels. I caution you to read these books in order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Regan | 9/28/2013

    " OMG! Just when I think she has told the best story ever Mariah Stewart writes one that is even better than the last. If you haven't read her, you got to check her out -- I would, however, recommend starting with her first FBI books simply because they are so good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marynelson321 | 9/15/2013

    " Enjoyed this series very much. Read the whole series in 4 days! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corky | 6/30/2013

    " A 3rd Mercy Street Foundation installment. I enjoyed the mystery elements, the characters (especially how the author brings in characters from other series), and the resolution. Where will Mercy Street go now? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anneka | 6/10/2013

    " I like it! Sad that it's over, but glad that Robert and Suse's thing kept going in the last of the Chesapeake series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amie | 5/17/2013

    " A little too 'coincidental' but I loved it and wished she's continue the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 3/5/2013

    " Overal this book was a good book. The only thing that took me back is how there was this big mystery and BAM story is solved! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katy | 12/7/2012

    " Good, suspenseful book for a dreary Sunday afternoon "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindi | 8/13/2012

    " This was a good book, great plot and characters. That said, for some reason I never became quite as invested with the H/H as in books 1 & 2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Perry | 7/23/2012

    " Great book! Many twists and turns. A great page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 4/21/2012

    " Good. A fast read. Third in a series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ericka Scott | 3/24/2012

    " Another "could not put it down" read from Mariah Stewart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Karkoff | 3/7/2012

    " Third in The Mercy Street novels. Good book, two mysteries going on at the same time. Clears up some issues from the other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 11/21/2011

    " Good book. Lots of action, suspense, and romance. The third in a series, all three of which are excellent. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 10/26/2011

    " I don't know if I lost the last part of the book, because if not it ended weirdly without resolving what happens to the characters. It's good otherwise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 10/9/2011

    " I enjoyed the first two books in the series so I have started the third book. If you like detective books, this is pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 10/7/2011

    " Great book, couldnt stop reading...it just grabs you, althouth this was different from the others in the series, in this case things are happening as we read, it is not a unsolved case thats been there sitting for sometime, so it is a bit more nerve wraking. Still enjoyed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 9/4/2011

    " This was another fantastic book, finished in 1 week. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 6/30/2011

    " Another great book in the Mercy Street series. Lots of action and some great romance. I also like how the overall mystery of Robert's family isn't being drawn out. That would have turned me off to the series. But I think Stewart is adding to that suspense without with-holding details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryHelen | 4/15/2011

    The killer is staging the 7 Acts of Mercy in order to 'punish' an 'old friend'.
    It was a fast read and kept my attention.
