9780312963965: Death of an Angel: A Sister Mary Helen Mystery (Sister Mary Helen Mysteries)

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...

Review:

If you haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting the crime-solving Sister Mary Helen and her feisty sidekick Sister Eileen, Death of an Angel is a good place to start. Deceptive gentleness masks a fierce strength, which Sister Mary Helen no doubt inherits from her creator, Sister Carol Anne O'Marie, who runs a shelter for homeless women in Oakland, California when she's not giving religious mysteries a good name. This time out, the sleuthing sisters get involved in the search for a serial rapist/murderer when he strikes very close to home.

About the Author:

Carol Anne O'Marie has been a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondolet for the last forty-five years. She ministers to homeless women in downtown Oakland, California, at A Friendly Place, a daytime drop-in center which she co-founded in 1990. Death of an Angel is her seventh mystery featuring Sister Mary Helen.
