THE PRODIGAL NUN

Image of The Prodigal Nun: A Sister Agatha Mystery (Sister Agatha Mysteries)

Sister Agatha's latest mystery strikes too close to home when a member of her church is murdered. A former journalist, Sister Agatha has the instincts and innate abilities to solve the mystery. And she's a unique and charming character -- one who rides a Harley and is accompanied by a former police dog in her pursuit of justice. As always, the Thurlos write a clean mystery with fluid dialogue and
a unique setting.

Sister Agatha, an extern nun with Our Lady of Hope Monastery in New Mexico, is horrified when a member of her church is slain on her way to mass. The victim, a woman named Jane Sanchez, had her share of enemies, including a son-in-law who detested her meddling, neighbors who disliked her opinionated nature and a husband she ruled with an iron fist.

When the killer issues a threat against the nuns, no one feels safe until Sister Agatha can find the evidence to bring a killer to justice. (ST. MARTIN'S MINOTAUR, Jul., 304 pp., $24.95)
