Baker & Taylor Sister Mary Helen finds herself investigating a murder while trying to avoid the police detectives who do not appreciate her interest and helping a young woman whose husband is wounded in a confrontation with the criminal
McMillan Palgrave When Sister Mary Helen heeds an inner calling, it leads her straight to a killer.
It is a rainy Feast of All Souls and feisty Sister Mary Helen, the Bay City's famous crime-fighting nun, has nothing more on her mind than helping Angelica Bowers, the troubled young woman who works in the library of Mount St. Francis College. Unfortunately, her plans are shattered when dear Gemma Burke, one of her oldest friends, becomes the latest victim of a serial rapist-murderer.
Sister Mary Helen realizes that the San Francisco police, despite their furious protests, need a little divine intervention-so she and her sidekick, Sister Eileen, set off after Gemma's killer. But little do the devout detectives know that they are walking into an intricate web of evil woven by a cold-blooded killer...
Blackwell North Amer In this seventh outing for Sister Mary Helen and her co-conspirator, Sister Eileen, the two nuns take time out from their duties at Mount St. Francis College in San Francisco when a wealthy widow, a benefactor of the college and dear friend, is the third victim of a local rapist-murderer. And if that weren't enough to make the nuns take the crime personally (and infuriate the homicide detective in charge, who has had experience with these feisty religious elderly before), the policeman husband of a former student (herself a cop) is severely wounded in a confrontation with the criminal. Between juggling their regular duties, ducking the notice of the detectives on the case, and attempting to straighten out the life of a sad young woman employed by the college library, Sister Mary Helen and Sister Eileen have their hands full. But as criminals, law enforcement types, and their fellow nuns have discovered, there's no stopping the pair if they feel their involvement is called for.
Baker & Taylor Sister Mary Helen once again finds herself investigating a murder, while trying to avoid the police detectives who do not appreciate her interest and helping a young woman whose husband is wounded in a confrontation with the criminal.
