The cloistered grounds of the convent have traditionally represented a place of faith and peace. Now, that peace is shattered as two nuns are found, one dead, one mortally wounded. The killings appear to be without motive, without an obvious suspect, and are further complicated by the murder and mutilation of a third woman. Together, medical examiner Maura Isles and intense, moody homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, both introduced in earlier Tess Gerritsen novels, uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Isles finds herself drawn inexorably towards the heart of an investigation that strikes closer to home - and towards a dawning revelation about the killer's identity too shattering to consider.

Another page turner that was very enjoyable with a thrilling suspenseful finale. Gerritsen is becoming additicve. Some very good parts of the novel; seeing Rizzoli and Isles work together as strong female characters but not without their flaws, seeing Isles with her ex-husband and Rizzoli with boyfriend Gabriel Dean and her very brave personal decision.

I am on a Gerritsen binge- they are all good - loaded w/quirky medical conditions and procedure - but this one is my favorite so far.
