'Masterton is one of the most original and frightening story tellers' I Read Novels.
'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' Booklist.

So, an elderly Nun is found dead in a nursing home. No just suffocated, the killer seems to have left something of a message too. On a visit to the Convent that the Nun used to belong to, part of a child's jaw bone is handed in. With incidents within the Catholic Church still recent, are the two connected. Then another Nun is found, her death also seeming to provide a message, Katie and her team pull out all the stops to investigate the Convent further. Going back to the days when the Convent "helped" young "unfortunates".
And then there's the horses...
I have read and enjoyed all the books in the series. Where I have found all the stories to be brilliant insofar as the crimes are concerned, sometimes the parts "outside the crimes" leave a bit to be desired but, as already mentioned, the crimes are well plotted, innovative and original so in my opinion, the series is still worth continuing with despite the annoyances. I wonder though, if the author feels that other readers wouldn't be so inclined because this book also contains something that I really, really hate. A huge great cliffhanger. It's a good job that I had already decided that I was continuing with the series (and already have the next book to read) otherwise that might have tipped me the other way.
Wow, It does seem like I really shouldn't be giving this four stars. But again, the story is good, the characters (Katie's personal life aside) are good. The descriptions of Ireland interesting rather than distracting and the pacing is good and the whole thing held my attention nicely. All things that, to me, make for a good read. In fact I started and finished in just over a day. And, with the next book already on my Kindle, the cliffhanger is just a mild annoyance.
None of the criminal protagonists are ever brought to justice, they usually end up getting killed. I knew the people murdering the nuns would die in the end. I predicted Katie would lose the baby, as it seemed it might have been an inconvenience from the way it was conceived and how it was affecting her relationships.
