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.…

    " THis book is part of a series with Detectives Montoya and Bentz. Story is about a murderer who is targeting nuns. There is underlying romance and some sexual situations. "

    " I usually love all her books, but this one was a little "out there" for me with the religious context. I still enjoy a book with twists and turns though. I would have also liked to know what happened with Val at the end...perhaps in the next one? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 9/17/2013

    " Another great Bentz/Montoya novel. This one I had figured out pretty early on, but still a page turner. Anticipating the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 7/23/2013

    " Great story and a good mystery. Wish I had realized it was a to be continued. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Byrne | 6/20/2013

    " Kept my interest up to the very end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Zhao | 12/17/2012

    " This is what I call "soft reading." A quick, unsubstantial read with the usual thriller components. The author, to her credit, surpassed the typical mediocrity I expected from this genre, making it an entertaining if somewhat forgettable novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 9/12/2012

    " Another great story from Jackson Lisa!! I love her books even if they do contain some rather grisly murder scenes. There is a lot of action and suspense, as well as the inevitable romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joella Tunnell | 8/23/2012

    " Murders of nuns in a convent in New Orleans. "

    " I did not enjoy this book very much. Was a struggle to finish it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jana | 5/5/2011

    " I always like the idea of Lisa Jackson's books but I've never made it through any of them. I'm not sure what it is that puts me off but the choppy mess of a beginning to this ensured I didn't make it past my 50 page limit (which is usually where I decide to go on or quit a book) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rilla | 5/5/2011

    " Really a great story. It relates how people who love each can still lie to each other, even close sisters. Also depicts some anamosity within an order of nuns who are extremely upset with the rumors and deaths occuring to some of the sisters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 5/3/2011

    " Exciting adventure. Have read at least one in this series, but must have missed a bunch. Maybe I'll go back and read them. Good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 4/25/2011
