Brilliant mystery that takes you back in time. Could not put this down!

Apr 30, 2018

Mother Superior Aquinas is the lead clerical detective here, with an atmospheric tale set against the backdrop of the Irish Civil War. Think the interpersonal wisdom of Jane Marple in a wimple. The tale is well-conceived, the setting in a stormy, flooded, and strife-torn Cork of the 1920s delightfully atmospheric.

THE FIRST BOOK IN THE Reverend Mother Aquinas SERIES

ChristchurchLib Feb 09, 2016

Cork, Ireland, 1923. When, one wet March morning, Reverend Mother Aquinas discovers a body at the gate of the convent chapel, she immediately sends for one of her former pupils, Police Sergeant Patrick Cashman, to investigate. Dead bodies ar not unusual in the poverty-stricken slums of Cork, but this one is dressed in evening finery; in her handbag is a dance program for the exclusive Merchants' Ball held the previous evening and a midnight ticket for the Liverpool ferry. Against the backdrop of a country in the midst of Ireland's Civil War, the Reverend Mother, Sergeant Cashman and Dr. Scher, an enlightened physician and friend, seek out the truth as to the identity of the victim and her killer.

This is the first book in a new series. It is a very interesting, clever mystery. I am looking forward to the next installment.
