Death's a Beach: a Sister Cecile Mystery by Winona Sullivan
Ivy Books, 0804115680, $2.95
Sister Cecile Buddenbrooks is no basic nun, at least not the kindly any subsister of Catholic seminary (like myself) would recognise. An heir next to a sequestered investigator's official document (see past mysteries A Sudden Death at the Norfolk Cafe and Dead South for the backstory on this), Sister Cecile supplements the profits of the Miami status environment for Catholic holy near income earned from her police officer sweat. In Death's a Beach, a plum charge is two-handed to her as a local finance concerns hires the nun to gawk into the obscure death of one of their own and find quite a few crucial documents ending seen on his being.
For all her contacts and smarts, however, Cecile is ignorant that the peak queer in Elliot Barclay's modification is not Barclay himself but Cecile's pre-teen charge, Leonie, who inadvertently was concerned in the man's demise. Leonie's confidential is not emphatically sealed, however, and rapidly Cecile's prerogative changes from find documents to protective Leonie from a light-tight socio-economic class of contestable company practices, a addict of Barclay's crooked on revenge, and a intolerant constabulary man who makes Archie Bunker stare close to Santa Claus.Post ads:

By enigma series standards, the Sister Cecile stories are relatively new (Saving Death, however, was lately released in matutinal 2000), and all are crunchy and amusive reads. Even the alteration in locales from Boston to Miami in Dead South does trifling to flat Cecile's preference for escapade and the absorption of her sidekicks, childly Leonie and advisable Sister Raphael. Only in fiction can a nun apparatus nigh on in a Jaguar or a Ferrari and be sincere.Post ads:
