Sister Anne has been thrown down the cellar stairs, and Inspector Sloan wonders who in God's name would want to murder a cloistered nun? Sloan's task is complicated by the unusual witnesses - 50-plus discreet, identically dressed nuns, each of whom has an assumed name and a past secular life.

Robin Bailey is not a showy narrator. With his British accent and low-key approach, he matches the author's understatement and wry wit. In this first book of 18 in the mystery series, a slightly world-weary Inspector Sloan investigates the murder of Sister Anne, a nun found dead at the bottom of the convent cellar stairs. He must do so under the watchful eye of his pompous superintendent and with the sometimes dubious help of a young constable. Robin Bailey captures the essence of Inspector Sloan exactly. Fortunately for us, Bailey narrated several more of the Sloan series before he died in 1999. P.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
