Crime & Mystery
Introducing the Reverend Mother Aquinas in the first of a brand-new historical mystery series.
Cork, Ireland. 1923. When Reverend Mother Aquinas discovers a body at the gate of the convent chapel washed up after a flood, she immediately sends for one of her former pupils, Police Sergeant Patrick Cashman, to investigate. Dead bodies are not unusual in the poverty-stricken slums of Cork city, but this one is dressed in evening finery; with a midnight ticket for the Liverpool ferry.
Against the backdrop of a country in the midst of Ireland's Civil War, the Reverend Mother, together with Sergeant Cashman and Dr Sher, seek out the truth as to the identity of the victim - and her killer.
