Description

Ancient church rituals meet cutting-edge crime-solving in this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series featuring NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas.

Seconds after partaking of wine during a Catholic funeral mass, Father Miguel Flores is dead on the altar. Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained enough potassium cyanide to kill a rhino. And though the East Harlem neighborhood is a long way from the stone mansion she shares with her billionaire husband Roarke, it’s the holiness flying around St. Christobal’s that makes her uneasy.

The autopsy reveals faint scars of knife wounds, a removed tattoo—and evidence of plastic surgery suggesting “Father Flores” may not be the man his parishioners thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that suggest identity theft, gang connections, and a deeply personal act of revenge, she hopes to track down whoever committed this unholy act. Until a second murder—in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers—knocks the whole investigation sideways...

    I really like this one because it really caused Dallas to look outside the box between state and religion. I think it helped to understand her past!

    Very good read! Captivating, lots of characters both alive and dead and plenty of plots around the main plot. It moves well and is never boring. You won’t want to put it down.

    I started buying the books in this series at a used book store before I bought an iPad. Even though I have a hard copy, I want to add this to my iBooks collection. The plot is creative and full of surprises.
