Katie Maguire never thought Ireland's nuns would need her protection...
In a nursing home on the outskirts of Cork, an elderly nun has been suffocated in her sleep. It looks like a mercy-killing – until another sister from the same convent is found floating in the Glashaboy river.
The nuns were good women, doing God's work. Why would anyone want to kill them? But then a child's skull is unearthed in the garden of the nuns' convent, and DS Katie Maguire discovers a fifty-year-old secret that just might lead her to the killer... if the killer doesn't find her first.

'An excellent book and deserved 5 stars'
Bestselling Crime Thrillers
'The author has a lot of story elements to juggle here, and he expertly keeps them all in the air. Known primarily for his many horror novels – he's a superstar in that genre – Masterton is also a talented mystery writer, and fans who haven't sampled the Maguire series should think about rectifying that sooner than later'
